Default Thrift store find!!!

Found this in a book at a thrift store!

This is the game where Bill Moseroski hit a walk-off Homerun to win the series! It was the first time that had ever happened. It's also the only World Series where the MVP(Bobby Richardson) came from the losing team.

Needless to say....I bought the book.

How much would you like for it?

It's not just the first it's the only time ever there has been a Game 7 Walk-off Homerun to win the World Series.

Very cool! Yeah, sometimes a book can have an amazing find inside of them. Best book I've found thrift shopping was a Tom Clancy novel, I think it was The Sum of All Fears, hardcover.

I bought it and opened it up and saw it was an autographed 1st Edition. Sold it for around $80, then he passes away shortly after that deal was complete, but I still made out for a $2 book! I was beyond happy with the deal.

My dads neighbor told me when he was a kid he took a book out of the local library and when he opened the book up to read it a Babe Ruth baseball card slid out of the book onto the floor. He says its in his safe deposit box

That's awesome, I am interested! I have a set of 3 of the seats and a brick from where the ball landed-my parents lived in Pittsburgh and went to the stadium as they were tearing it down and asked if they could buy some seats, and they let them in to pick what they wanted.
