Jack Schmidt 500th Home Run Poster
Given the setting, the circumstances and the history, Mike Schmidt’s 500th home run was certainly worthy of a major celebration.
But for the era – and with Schmidt’s business-like approach to his stellar career – the reaction caught everyone off guard.
Schmidt’s three-run blast off Don Robinson of the Pirates turned a 6-5 Pittsburgh lead into an 8-6 Phillies win on April 18, 1987. Schmidt clubbed Robinson’s center-cut 3-0 fastball and deposited it into the second deck at Three Rivers Stadium, rallying a Philadelphia team that had squandered a three-run lead in the bottom of the eighth.
This Philadelphia Phillies poster makes for a perfect gift for the Phillies fan in your life. It would complete any office, game room or man cave of an Phillies fan. And you don't even have to worry about a frame - all prints ship framed.
