In one of the most important moments in baseball history, Harry "Chunky" Harris of the Associated Press was there. Perched next to Nat Fein in a weird position BEHIND a baseball icon as he said goodbye, he perfectly snapped Babe Ruth as he addressed Yankee Stadium shortly before his death. A large example re-struck in the early 1970's (file stamped 1975), this is an affordable example of this famous photo in great shape with some light creasing.
