Among all of Babe Ruth's epic accomplishments on the diamond, the one HE called the biggest thrill of his life was the final game of the 1928 World Series when he cracked three home runs in sinking the St. Louis Cardinals. The offered image shows the Bambino about to cross the plate after one of his clouts and was congratulated by Lou Gehrig at Home Plate (who also hit a home run in the game). An aerial masterpiece of photography, this is from the archives of Underwood and Underwood and offered here for the first time ever!
