    New York Herald Tribune, 'Goodbye to All That,' 13-14 June 1948

  • Catalogue Essay

    Nat Fein's iconic The Babe Bows Out accompanied an article by Arthur Daley in the 13-14 June New York Herald Tribune which memorialized Babe Ruth's final appearance at Yankee Stadium.

    "Nostalgia dripped all over Yankee Stadium today in the wake of weeping skies as an amazing crowd of 49,641 turned out to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the opening of the House That Ruth Built and to welcome back the heroes of the 1923 team which brought the first world championship to the Bronx Bombers. In impressively sentimental ceremonies Babe Ruth's famed No. 3 was permanently retired and his uniform formally presented to the baseball shrine at Cooperstown as eyes grew moist and fans choked up at the touching scene."
