The Babe Bows Out
An American Classic

One of the most emotional moments in Yankees history, and one of the most notable photographs in American history! On Babe Ruth Day at the stadium on June 13, 1948, there wasn't a dry eye in the house, as everyone knew it would be The Babe's final appearance at the house that he built. In beautiful sepia-toned black & white from the lens of legendary photographer Nat Fein, you get a brilliant view of the original, pre-renovation Yankee Stadium, as it stood during The Babe's playing days, at a moment that lives on in history. The Stadium details are magnificent, the Yankees down the line are inspiring, and The Babe stands alone, apart from all other Yankees in their incredible history. Fein won a Pulitzer Prize for this photograph, which now hangs in both the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. A rare poster from New York Graphic Society that you'll likely never find in stores!
