Item 862 - Lou Gehrig Catalog 560 (Jul 2019)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $2,000.00 +
Sold Price: $4,972.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Exceptional vintage matte-finish 7.5 x 9.5 photo of Gehrig as he appeared in the 1938 film Rawhide, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To Grace, You'll never know how grand it has been working with you, Cordially, Lou Gehrig." In fine condition, with some small, scattered black stains to the upper right edge area.

A wonderful, sharp image of Gehrig in his only Hollywood screen appearance, playing himself as a vacationing ballplayer visiting his sister on a ranch in the fictional town of Rawhide, Montana. Filming took place prior to the 1938 season, which would be his last full season before being diagnosed with ALS in June of 1939. In 2006, neuroscience researchers studied the film and found that Gehrig did not exhibit any visible signs of the disease during the film, concluding that he was functioning normally at that time. A handsome portrait with an interesting background.
