It was the Big Red Machine vs. the stacked Orioles in orange - a World Series showdown for the ages! One of the most memorable moments of the 1970 World Series - won by Baltimore in five - was this thrilling play at the plate during Game 5. The biggest man in the game, Orioles first baseman Boog Powell, headed home on a colission course with the greatest catcher the game has ever seen, Johnny Bench. Would the ball arrive in time? Would Powell's ample weight jar it loose? Could Bench possibly block the plate from such a formidable baserunner? Alas, the play would mirror the result of the game and the series - Bench held on to the throw, but Powell beat it to the plate and plowed his way through, scoring the fifth of nine runs in Baltimore's 9-3 series-clinching victory.

For classic baseball action, few images capture the thrills like this one. A brilliant work of vintage photographic sports art for your wall, it is perfect for fans of the Reds and Bench, the O's and Powell, and of great moments in the sport's history. A exclusive, this poster is printed on high-quality photographic stock direct from the original photographic source, and is affixed with an MLB authentic serialized hologram for authenticity. A brilliant piece of baseball history for your wall, this is the ultimate commemorative, worthy of a nice frame and a prominent place on the wall of home or office!
