1977 Topps Baseball #276 - A.L. Championship

  • This is a good picture of the Chris Chambliss home run that ended the AL Championship Series and sent the New York Yankees to their first World Series since 1964.
  • As shown on the back of the card, Chambliss led the Yankees in hits, runs, and home runs in the five game series. If a series MVP award were given out, Chambliss would have been the runaway winner.
  • I remember being shocked at the behavior of the fans after the ball cleared the right field fence. It was pandemonium at Yankee Stadium. The home run is shown in the video below (Phil Rizzuto announcing).
