Ralph Branca
signed my program at a Brooklyn Cyclones game a few years ago.
I had this picture of Bobby and Ralph hanging on my wall for many years.
This would be that autograph; cut out and put into the frame.

My respects to the
Thompson Family

  1. I love the new header.

    RIP Bobby Thompson. You had one of the greatest moment in sports.

    To the Thompson Family my deepest sympathy. I grew up in Brooklyn NY and was a Dodger Fan but my late Dad was a Giant Fan. Yes if you were a baseball fan in that era Bobby's homerun was pretty darn great.

    May G-D protect Bobby's Soul for all eternity.
