Special Order—Subject to Availability


Never in baseball history had a team ranked last rebounded to take the pennant the following season. Yet in 1991 lightning struck twice as the Minnesota Twins and the Atlanta Braves, a pair of cellar dwellers the year before, faced each other in an unforgettable World Series. When the final out was recorded, the cover headline in Baseball Weekly read: “Best World Series Ever.”
