Among the most famous and sought after images ever taken of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig is this photo posed with the Superstar Brothers of the Pittsburgh Pirates at the start of the epic 1927 World Series. The New York Yankees of 1927 had demolished the American League and the diminutive Waners and their Pittsburgh Pirates were all that stood between them and Baseball Immortality. The Yankees would sweep the Pirates and as time went on, be called the greatest team of All Time. Only a handful of originals from this moment have ever been offered and this is a beautiful silver gelatin original (Dated October 6, 1927) by NEA. A stunning high grade example with a tiny corner chip on the upper right is Hall of Fame worthy and ranks among the finest images in the hobby, period! This photo sold for $2656 in our Feb Premier Auction!
