Description

Babe Ruth crosses home plate with Lou Gehrig following closely behind after knocking a three-run homer off the Cardinals' Grover Cleveland Alexander in the first inning of the second game of the 1928 World Series. In scoring their second straight Series sweep, the Yankees this year took full revenge on "Ol Pete" for his legendary relief appearance against them in the 1926 Championship. In the four games, Gehrig hit .545 with four homers, the Babe .625 with three homers and three doubles. This unique photo, capturing the two greatest Yankees sluggers in action together at the peak of their destructive power, measures a full 8x10, has the news service stamping and a full tag line attached to the back, and is in terrific condition, grading (EX).
