Eat Dinner with Bill Buckner and Mookie Wilson

With the 25th anniversary of the 1986 World Series rapidly approaching, Mookie Wilson and Bill Buckner have appeared in many headlines lately surrounding the legendary moment. Now, one fan can become part of their own headline by way of an auction for an exclusive dinner with the two players at the center of the infamous moment. The winning bidder and three guests will take in a meal with Buckner and Wilson at Mickey Mantle's Restaurant & Sports Bar in New York City on October 24th, the day before the anniversary.

The auction runs until Wednesday, October 19th, with bidding starting at $5,000. Visit the listing at Gotta Have It for more information. The auction site also has several other items from the 1986 World Series, including a game-used ball from Game Six, signed by both Buckner and Wilson.

Buckner and Wilson are forever connected thanks to a play in the sixth game of the 1986 World Series. Wilson, a member of the Mets, hit a routine grounder to Buckner. The ball went between the first baseman's legs and into the outfield, giving New York the win and forcing a seventh and deciding game.
