A Swell Ron Swoboda Toy & Card
Transogram immortalized this outfielder in a toy before the catch that made him a Mets legend. In Game 4 of the 1969 World Series, Ron Swoboda made a spectacular grab from a deep horizontal dive in the 9th inning, stopping a Baltimore Orioles rally and forcing extra frames. The Mets went on to win in 10 innings, 2-1. Swoboda was also clutch in the batter’s box, hitting the RBI that won Game 5 and the Series for the Mets.
