    Description

    2000 Nat Fein Signed "The Babe Bows Out" Photograph. UPDATE: This lot is accompanied by a Full LOA from PSA/DNA for the autograph.

    The Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph is the definitive image recalling the sad final ovation afforded to the Babe on June 13, 1948 at the House that he built. Fein recounted the warm, grey day years later, recalling how he had snuck away from the other photographers to shoot the number "3" that would never again ride Yankee pinstripes, and how he had foregone the use of a flash to capture the somber mood of the occasion. Ruth would die just two months later.

    Double-matted and framed 17.75x14.75m (12.5x9.75" visible in frame) this print is signed "True Yankee Fan, Nat Fein" in Mint black sharpie at lower right. Certificate (signed by the photographer and dated March 2000) attached to the back of the frame attests that the image was printed off the original negative. Perhaps the most famous and moving baseball photograph of all. Mint condition. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
