Amazing team-signed program - including future icons Cal Ripken Jr. and Wade Boggs - from the longest professional baseball game in history. The contest started on April 18, 1981 as the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings, two teams from the Triple-A International League, played 33 innings, with 8 hours and 25 minutes of playing time; the first 32 innings were played on April 18-19, with the final frame occurring on June 23. A total of 50 signatures adorn this game program (VG-EX condition) from that night/morning (the game was suspended shortly after 4:00 am Easter Sunday), with PSA LOA included. The PawSox needed just 16 minutes upon the game's resumption to push across the winning run in their 3-2 victory.
