    "Babe Ruth hitting his 60th home run in 1927"

    Babe Ruth Hitting 60th Home Run Type IV Photograph.
    It was a mark that would last for nearly thirty-five years. With sixty home runs in the 1927 season, Babe Ruth demolished the old record and set it anew until another Yankee would break it in 1961. This image captures the exact moment Ruth hit his 60th of the season. The Type IV image features writing in pencil on the reverse as well as the remnants of the paper caption. Moderate wear shown throughout.
