Large 1927 aerial photograph of Babe Ruth scoring the first run of the famed "Murderers Row" World Series against the Pirates after Gehrig had hit a triple. Issued by the International News and stamped on the back with a paper caption as well, this is a cool photograph that shows Gehrig's bat still sitting on the ground right where the Iron horse set it down! The photo quality is quite nice considering the angle from the photographer but it does have some chipping at the edges which could be matted out.
