One of the greatest stories of triumph and tragedy in major-league baseball history, New York Yankees first baseman Lou Gehrig arrived in the Bronx as a 20-year-old in 1923, just as the great Babe Ruth was entering his prime and re-writing the record books with each passing year. A solid but unspectacular player his first four seasons, Gehrig emerged as a dominant force in 1927 when he slammed 47 homers drove in a league-leading 173 runs, batted .373, and won the American League MVP award. His 1,995 career RBI still places him in the top 10 all-time, and who knows what records Gehrig would hold had he not passed away at the age of 37. Autographs of "The Iron Horse" are among the most coveted in the hobby, and this signed 4" x 6" photo may very well be the most well-preserved specimen known. It certainly doesn't hurt that this circa 1930s photo was produced by George Burke, one of the foremost photographers of his time. The smiling portrait of Gehrig is tagged with the finest penning that we've ever seen, reading "Best Wishes Ambrose, Lou Gehrig" in deep black marker that earns a perfect GEM MINT 10 grade. Bold and clean from start to finish, it's absolutely flawless. The reverse has the George Burke stamp and notations consistent with his filing system. It's simply the best there is!
Exceptional Lou Gehrig Type I Photo By George Burke With Amazing PSA 10 Autograph
