    Description

    1948 The Death of Babe Ruth Wire Photographs Lot of 6. A half dozen news photographs capture the solemn proceedings as the baseball world bade farewell to its greatest hero. Three of the shots offer a passing glimpse of the fallen Babe as he lies in his coffin at Yankee Stadium while throngs of fans file past. The other images are exterior shots of the crowds of mourners, and the flag at half staff against the background of the Yankee Stadium playing field. Each image measures 7x9" in size and average EX condition. All have original paper caption affixed.
