Iconic Fisk Home Run Ball Goes Up For Auction

"... There it goes, a long drive, if it stays fair -- Home run! ... We will have a seventh game in this 1975 World Series ..." We all remember Dick Stockton's great call that night. It was the capstone moment of the greatest World Series game ever—Game 6 in 1975. As Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk waved his game-winning HR fair, the game of baseball itself was rejuvenated. Now the iconic ball—which clanked off the left-field foul pole right into George Foster's glove—will be auctioned off. Robert Edward Auctions is setting the "reserve" price at $100,000—but it will surely go for much more.
