Description


Extraordinary matte-finish 8 x 10 original Type 1 photo of a relaxed Lou Gehrig in his classic Yankees pinstripes, smiling with squinting eyes, neatly signed in fountain pen, “Lou Gehrig.” The 1930s era photo, which has a clean unfettered reverse, has been authenticated and encapsulated by PSA/DNA as a Type 1 image. This appears to be a 'one shot' image—one we have not before seen, and likely taken by a passing photographer. In excellent condition overall, with a light crease in the upper right corner, and two moderate creases in the lower right corner, none of which affect the beautifully scripted signature. An immaculate and truly spectacular portrait of the ‘Iron Horse,’ one of the nicest we have ever encountered. Even by itself—without a signature—this Type 1 photograph would be a highly prized foundation piece to a New York Yankees or Gehrig collection. Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from James Spence Authentication (JSA).
