Four of the Greatest players ever to step foot on the grass and clay. It is amazing to have so much fame in one photograph. A young Lou Gehrig, the "Iron Horse," the tremendous power hitter and most respected and emulated ballplayer of all time...a true saint of a man. Tris Speaker, the "Gray Eagle," arguably the best center fielder ever to play the game. Ty Cobb, the "Georgia Peach, amazing record holder and many feel the greatest player of all time. Babe Ruth, the "Sultan of Swat," the "Bambino," the "Babe," the greatest slugger of all time. He made the game of baseball the popular game it is today. There are not enough words to describe the greatness and wonderful history in this one photograph. Original silver-gelatin print. Edition limited to 5000.
