Description

What better way to christen Yankee Stadium's inaugural year than with the Yankee franchise's inaugural world championship? It was a season for the ages as Babe set career highs with a .393 average, .545 on-base percentage, 205 hits, 45 doubles and 170 walks, plus 17 stolen bases. Here, fans at the House That Ruth Built watch as their A.L. title flag goes up. The 8x10 photo's reverse is notated "Yankee Stadium at New York City" above a United Newspictures stamping and "APR 28 1924" date-stamping by N.E.A. Typical newsroom usage in the form of crop marks, editorial highlights and perimeter handling wear.
