Origin: The Giants moved from New York to San Francisco
Teams/people involved: San Francisco Giants
Year started: 1957
When the San Francisco Giants moved away from New York in 1957, many believed that the team left all their good luck in the Big Apple. Coogan's Bluff refers to the site of their original ballpark in Harlem where the team had won five World Series titles, including the 1954 championship, which featured Willie Mays' unforgettable catch in Game 1.
However, when they went to the Bay Area, the team ended up losing three different World Series match-ups, including the 1989 series, which was delayed by the infamous Loma Prieta earthquake. It wasn't until 2010 that the team would finally break through again, following up their effort in 2012 to earn their second title in three years.
