It's the bottom of the ninth at Yankee Stadium. Two outs. Detroit up 2-1. Yankee batter Elston Howard hits a short fly to right. Al Kaline makes the diving grab to win the game...but breaks his collarbone in the process. Mr. Tiger misses the next two months due to the mishap. New York Post photographer William Jacobellis was on the scene and instinctually captured both the before and after shots that showed readers exactly what happened. The 8x10 photos are EX-MT with Jacobellis stamps on reverse.
