May 30, 1935 An outstanding capturing of a poignant moment...probably Bruce Murray's best. The man who made baseball the game that it is...deciding to give up that game...the game he made his life...all captured on film. After this photograph was taken, Babe Ruth went on to play only one inning. He then walked off the field very dramatically out through center field, never to play again. A full story accompanies this photograph. Original silver-gelatin print. Edition limited to 5000.
This 11” x 14” photograph is hand printed from the original 4" X 5" vintage negative. A full "archival print" process has been used, incorporating museum-quality acid free paper. This time consuming and painstaking procedure ensures the finest quality and longest lasting image. Each photograph is numbered and embossed with "The Bruce Murray Collection" name. Each photograph is also accompanied by an "About the Artist" biography, a Background Story of the photograph and a Certificate of Authenticity individually signed by the grandson of the photographer. The final print has been donated to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., and is now part of their permanent collection.
