1948 Poignant photograph of New York Yankees player Cliff Mapes (who had been wearing number 3 for the Yankees) officially hangs up his jersey in the locker of Babe Ruth symbolic that nobody would ever wear the number again. Mapes would start wearing number 13 instead. A dramatic and artistic image that presents a powerful story, taken by a photographer at Acme and with a loose but present paper caption as well.
