Watch Video of Kirk Gibson's amazing Pinch Hit (courtesy of MLB.com)

Manufactured by the ABC company, this size medium Dodger blue batting helmet is amongst the most publicly seen pieces of sports equipment. Donned by Kirk Gibson to hit his game winning home run in Game One of the 1988 series, it is readily identifiable in video and still photographs viewed by millions of fans who have recounted the historic event repeatedly over the last twenty plus years. It’s battle worn markings, easily distinguishable in that footage; include scuff marks, minor scrapes, and pine tar throughout the bill and top of the helmet. Original decals include the interlocking “LA” logo on front and Gibson’s number “23” on the bill and back of the helmet. Likely worn throughout the 1988 regular season for which Gibson earned NL MVP honors, it was labeled with the exclusive 1988 World Series sticker on the back upon being designated for use in the Fall Classic. Gibson has inscribed the front, “1988 WS HR Helemt Kirk Gibson 23” in silver sharpie. Includes a signed LOA from Kirk Gibson and an additional LOA from PSA/DNA (auto.)
