Last Night at Yankee Stadium

A Panoramic View in Bronx, NY - The Rob Arra Collection
Note the ball in motion in both images.
"All good things must come to an end" - and what an end it was! Commemorate the final game at the original Yankee Stadium with this breathtaking print from the master of panoramic sports photography, Rob Arra. Published in the classic white-bordered design, with Arra's always-perfect photography, and several unique added design elements, this is both a beautiful work of sports art for your wall, and a valuable collector's item for years to come!
The main image was taken during the emotional pre-game ceremony, as dozens of all-time Yankee greats took the field at their customary positions, and watched as one of the few living reminders of the origins of the stadium - 90-year-old Julia Ruth Stevens, the daughter of Babe Ruth - releases the ceremonial first pitch. As with all images in Arra's Everlasting Images collection, the entire scene appears in perfect focus and sharp detail, and the scene unfolds before your eyes - from the architectural details, to the legends on the field, to the awe-struck fans in the stands, it's all here!
Inset in the main picture are three additional images from that night: at bottom-left, it's the final pitch of the game, as Mariano Rivera's last Yankee Stadium fastball approaches Baltimore's Brian Roberts' bat, ultimately destined for the glove of first baseman Cody Ransom, who stepped on first for the final out; at bottom-center, you get the entire range of retired numbers as they appeared in Monument Park; and, at bottom-right, it's a shot of the legends of Yankee Stadium plaques that populated Monument Park behind the left-field fence. As a final design element to top it all off, a listing of all 24 New York Yankees World Series Championship seasons appears in the sky above.
Whether you are a season ticket holder, a long-time Yankee fan, a baseball lover who was lucky enough to visit the park on a visit to New York, or simply a fan of great stadiums and baseball history, this amazing commemorative print is for you! Perfect for a nice frame and a prominent place on the wall of home, office, locker room, or classroom.
