Check out this rare video snippet from Don Larsen's 1956 perfect game, in which Duke Snider nearly ruins history, as called by Mel Allen.

Pretty cool.

Even cooler is that on July 10, for the first time, the only known existing recording of the TV coverage of the game - featuring Allen and Vin Scully - will be on public view in New York City for the first time since the game was played 52 years ago.

It costs $30, which is a tenth the cost of a fundraiser viewing held late in 2006 that was attended by Larsen and Yogi Berra at the latter's museum in New Jersey.
