It's October 4, 1961, at Yankee Stadium, Game 1 of the World Series, and Whitey Ford has just struck out Cincinnati Reds' leadoff hitter Don Blasingame to begin a classic pitching performance. In a game that took a mere two hours and 11 minutes to complete, Ford went the distance, allowing only two hits, while walking one and striking out six in the Yankees' 2-0 victory. Ford, a 25-game winner in the regular season, yielded a one- out, first-inning single to Eddie Kasko, a lead-off, fifth-inning single to Wally Post and a one-out, seventh-inning walk to Frank Robinson. Only Post advanced as far as second base. Reds' lefthander Jim O'Toole pitched well, too, but solo homers by catcher Elston Howard in the fourth inning and first baseman Moose Skowron in the sixth provided all the support Ford needed. Other Yankees on the field are second baseman Bobby Richardson, shortstop Tony Kubek, third baseman Clete Boyer, left fielder Yogi Berra, center fielder Roger Maris and right fielder Hector Lopez. Ford came back to win Game 4 at Crosley Field in Cincinnati before the Yankees wrapped up the Series the following day.

Measuring 21 5/8" tall x 29 5/8" wide, this lithograph, officially titled Ten/Four/Sixty-One, 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.
