The date was April 17th, 1953; the place was Griffith Stadium in Washington, D.C. At the top of the fifth inning, pitcher Chuck Stobbs of the Senators threw a fastball to 21 year-old Mickey Mantle. Mantle sent the ball towards left center field, over the stands, off the Bohemian Beer sign, and then off a house. Thus was born the tape measure home run, which remains the longest measured home run in history. This autographed black and white 8x10 shows Mantle pointing to the ball which left the ballpark that day.
