A high-quality reproduction based on Dave Hobrecht's original charcoal and pastel painting of Major League legend, all-time New York Yankees great, baseball Hall of Famer, and original Home Run King, Babe Ruth. Ruth is arguably the greatest baseball player of all time and his explosion onto the sports scene in the 1920's changed the game forever. Ruth started his career as a pitcher in 1914 with the Boston Red Sox and soon became the ace of the staff winning 23 and 24 games in 1916 and 1917. His career ERA with the Bosox was 2.19 and he amassed 94 career wins! After switching to a full-time outfielder and everyday player in 1919 and setting the then single-season home run record with 29, he was solf to the New York Yankees. Ruth went on to shatter his own HR record with 54 in '20, 59 in '21 and then hit 60 HRS in 1927 - a record that would stand for almost 35 years. Ruth finished his fabled career with 714 lifetime homers and became the game's most beloved figure. Available in Black, Grey, and White.
