The year is 1955. With the 2013 MLB World Series set to start next week – I’m snagging another opportunity to showcase a classic colorized Baseball moment. On the mound is New York Yankees hurler, Don Larsen pitching his way into the record books with his famous Perfect Game in the 1955 World Series. In 9 innings, not one Brooklyn Dodger got on base. It was an amazing feat for Larsen.

And it was an unforgettable World Series (I watched on TV from my crib) . . . Larsen pitched his perfect game, Duke Snider cracked 4 home runs, Jackie Robinson stole home, the Bums won it in 7 games, and the borough of Brooklyn went crazy. So, let’s go back to 1955. That’s practically current events to us. I’ve chosen to display the World Series moment – as a baseball card, loosely-styled after the 1956 Topps card series.
