Father’s Day this year falls on June 18. If that reminder induces a frantic urge to run to the nearest tie store, perhaps allow yourself a moment’s reconsideration. Rather than adorning his neck just as the summer heat kicks in, consider adorning his home or office with something that will never go out of fashion: an iconic photograph from the LIFE collection, now on sale for a limited time in the TIME Shop.
Yale Joel’s image of New Hampshire Little Leaguers awaiting their uniforms in 1954 captures the super-serious business of boys trying on manhood as they prepare to take to the diamond. Loomis Dean’s photo of the inter-species friendship between a duck named Donald and a dog named Trigger proves that some love transcends even nature’s expectations. And Ed Clark captures the intimate joy in a father’s gaze at his baby girl—a love so universal that it hardly registers, for an instant, that its subjects are a future president and his daughter.
In addition to the available collection of LIFE classics, five photographs from TIME and Sports Illustrated are newly available for purchase.
