ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) — The Cardinals won game three of the 2013 World Series with a wild play at third base. The Red Sox’s Will Middlebrooks was called for obstruction on runner Allen Craig. The umpire said Middlebrooks stuck his legs up as Craig tried to make the run home. That call won the game for the Redbirds, 5-4.

Now, you can bid on the plate that made baseball history. According to Major League Baseball Auctions, “This was the 3rd base on the field for the “Obstruction Play” that gave the Cardinals a win in Game 3. This item contains a Major League Baseball Authentication hologram.”
