Topps Heritage Card of the Day: 2008 Topps Heritage Bill Mazeroski Authentic Seat

This is a pretty sweet looking Topps Heritage Bill Mazeroski card with an authentic piece of a stadium seat from the old Forbes Field in Pittsburgh. Bill played his entire career with the Pirates and was eventually voted into Baseball's Hall of Fame in 2001. Many fans remember Bill's dramatic home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the Yankees and win the 1960 World Series. It was the first time a World Series had ever been won on what we now call a "walk-off" home run. The fan that caught the ball in the stands later traded it back to Mazeroski for two cases of beer!
