Description

Magnificent portrait of the Iron Horse: “May your achievements make mine look trivial”

Stunning glossy 8 x 10 full-length portrait of Gehrig posing in his Yankees uniform with his bat on his shoulder, neatly signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To Al—May your achievements make mine look trivial—Cordially, Lou Gehrig.” The lower right corner also bears an ink notation by the official team photography studio from the 1920s through 1940s, “Thorne.” Double-matted and framed to an overall size of 16 x 20. Some scattered surface creases (none affecting Gehrig’s image or signature), otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. By far the finest Gehrig photo we have offered. RR Auction COA.
