On September 3, 1977, Sadaharu Oh belted his 756th lifetime home run, eclipsing Hank Aaron's world career home run record. The moment is captured here in a pair of Fuji Color Film Photos in their original photo mounts. The Japanese text at the top of both photo mounts refers to this being the dramatic moment when Oh hit homer number 756. The smaller text at the bottom mentions the date (9/3), time (7:10 p.m.) and the opponent (Yakult Swallows). The photos themselves depict Oh in mid-swing and at the end of swing, as he rocketed the ball into the right field stands.

Size: Each photo is 4 5/8" x 3 1/4".
