Here he is running out to take his spot at SS one last time in front of the home crowd. He had a pretty good game, but let's skip to the important part...the bottom of the ninth.
There's the crack of his bat and...
...we have a fairytale, walk off ending!
The Captain acknowledges the fans...
...and does a victory lap of sorts. All the while, soaking in the crowd's appreciation.
His teammates showed him some love and appreciation too!
While I am certainly saddened that he is no longer on the field, his last appearance at Yankee Stadium sure was memorable!
Like so many other moments and images from his incredible career, I'll remember this image for years to come...and when I think of it, I'll smile. Thanks to Topps, I'll be able to relive that night anytime I want. Thanks for reading!
