Immensely desirable vintage pencil signature, "Best Wishes, Lou Gehrig,” on an off-white 5.25 x 3.25 government postcard, postmarked September 9, 1936. Double-matted and framed with a scarce and highly sought-after original ticket stub for the "Lou Gehrig Memorial" at Yankee Stadium on July 4, 1941, an original 1939 World Series program, a color copy of the front of the postcard, a photo, and a plaque engraved with his famous farewell speech to an overall size of 37 x 24. In fine condition, with a tack hole, and some minor discoloration, above the signature. The program and ticket stub are extremely desirable on their own, and paired with this beautiful 1936 pencil signature make for an absolutely outstanding display.
