Dated 6/9/68, the typed caption on the reverse reads, in part, "At Yankee Stadium...General view of the stadium during the moment of silent prayer for RFK...Mickey Mantle in the center, with teammates." Although not specifically identified as such, the captioning style shows all the hallmarks of a New York Times photograph, and indeed the reference "SISTO" no doubt refers to award-winning NYT photographer Ernie Sisto (1904-1989). Measures 8-1/4 x 12" and rates EX with typical minor peripheral wear.
