Phil Rizzuto NY Yankees

Phil Rizzuto, New York Yankees-September 1948

On August 16, 1948, Babe Ruth passed away from a fight with throat cancer. As a tribute to the fallen legend, the New York Yankees wore a black armband on their sleeve to remember the slugger that was. This photography of Phil Rizzuto displays said armband during one of his at-bats late in the 1948 season at Comiskey Park in Chicago.

Presented for purchase is a fine-art, exhibition quality print that is limited in edition size. Each piece is produced according to the highest archival standards. Please click here for more detail on what makes each print a fine-art masterpiece.
Shoebox Collections photographs are produced using the finest museum-quality materials. Each masterpiece is the result of a meticulous development process initiated by a high resolution scan of the original negative. The digital image is then carefully restored to its original brilliance as captured by the photographer. Finally, the image is printed with the finest exhibition-quality, archival materials.

Each fine art piece is produced on Museo Silver Rag Archival Fine Art 100% Cotton Paper. Museo fine art media, originally developed by Crane & Co. (manufacturing the finest cotton papers in the U.S. since 1801) is manufactured to archival standards (Library of Congress, ISO) with all products being 100% cotton, internally buffered (to prevent long term environmental acidification), and containing no optical brighteners (which are known to fade over time). Additionally, each piece is produced using archival, pigment inks, which, when tested by Wilhelm Imaging Research, have proven to produce a print with permanence of 200 plus years.

Each individually numbered print is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity with matching tamper proof seals affixed to the back of the print and the certificate, thus verifying the legitimacy of this investment.

The final piece offers the look and feel of a traditional darkroom fiber-based print that provides our customers peace-of-mind knowing each investment will be enjoyed by generations to come.
