Lost in the mystic of the famous "Babe Bows Out" Pulitzer Prize winning photograph are the other events surrounding Babe Ruth's final appearance in uniform at Yankee Stadium. There were gifts, old friends reuniting, a speech, and one final trip into the batters box to show the form that made him a legend. Here Ruth is photographed from the front by official New York Yankees photographer Bob Olen as he holds the bat and poses like he is about to hit one final homer! A large image, this is the only example of this photo we have ever seen and it presents perfectly clear. An important piece of baseball history offered here for the first time ever with the important stamp from the photographer.
