Framed Hank Aaron Record-Breaking Home Run lithograph
[ View larger image ]
It was April 8, 1974, when Hank Aaron achieved baseball immortality, which happened exactly at 9:07 in the evening at Atlanta Stadium. That's when and where Hammerin' Hank hit career home run #715 off the Dodgers' Al Downing, thereby passing Babe Ruth to become the sport's all-time home run king. Aaron's famous swat is the subject of this lithograph, which shows the record-breaking moment unfolding in front of what was then the largest crowd to ever see a baseball game in Atlanta.

From a vantage point perfect for watching the ball's flight path, artist Bill Purdom allows us to see the 40-year old man wearing #44 on his back send #715 skyward towards left-center field during the Braves' 1974 home opener, which was attended by 53,775 fans and watched by an estimated 35 million viewers on television. The scene surrounding Aaron's much anticipated homer is recreated down to its finest details, ensuring that Chief Noc-A-Homa's teepee in left field and the billboards advertising Coca-Cola and others forever remain a part of the record.

Measuring 21 5/8" tall x 29 5/8" wide, this lithograph, officially titled Seven-One-Five, is limited in edition to 600 prints. Each is numbered and signed by the artist, Bill Purdom, from whose original painting the fine art print has been exactingly reproduced onto acid-free paper, which is noted for its long-term archival abilities. The lithograph can be ordered with or without a frame. The frame is made of silver aluminum and the print within it is protected by plexiglass.
