Surely, what most people remember about this championship club is the unforgettable over-the-shoulder catch made by Willie Mays in the World Series. They might forget that the Giants defeated one of the most prolific regular season teams of all time, the Cleveland Indians team that had gone 111-43 during the season. By contrast, the NL champion Giants won 14 fewer games than had the Tribe so the fact that the Giants swept the Indians in four was a shock to most in the baseball world. Official Reach baseball shows some moderately heavy even toning that is consistent so the overall look is still good. Manager Leo Durocher on the sweet spot. Also, Joe Altobelli, Larry Jansen, Don Mueller, Ray Katt, Al Dark, Bobby Hofman, Sal Maglie, Whitey Lockman and more. There are more than 20 who signed but several have faded. 20 are what we know are on here though several have faded enough to be tough to read. Average about 4/5 of 10 darkness. Auction LOA from JSA.
