It's April 8, 1974, at Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta, and Hammerin' Hank Aaron has just launched a pitch from Los Angeles' Al Downing toward the left field wall. The long wait is over. With career clout number 715, Aaron passes Babe Ruth on the all-time home run list. Aaron had cracked his 713th homer on the second-to-last day of the '73 season, creating a winter-long buildup for this historic moment. He set the stage by tying Ruth's record of 714 in Cincinnati, on Opening Day of the '74 season. Then, four days later and in front of a hometown crowd of 53,775 and an estimated 35 million television viewers, the Braves' slugger delivered the record-breaker. Aaron had walked in his first at-bat of the game, drawing an explosion of boos. But in the fourth inning, with Darrell Evans on first, Aaron took a 1-0 pitch out of the yard. The Braves erased a 3-1 deficit with four runs in the inning and went on to a 7-4 victory. Other players visible are C Joe Ferguson, 3B Ron Cey, SS Bill Russell and LF Bill Buckner.

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.
