1926 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball from The Lou Gehrig Collection, Finest Example Known. Though the 1925 campaign, by virtue of his 126 appearances, is considered Lou Gehrig's rookie season, the following year is recalled as the young infielder's first great one. The native born New York slugger would almost double his run production for the 1926 season, beginning a remarkable streak of triple-digit RBI tallies that would only end with the year of his tragic farewell. The 1926 campaign would likewise provide Gehrig with his first taste of October baseball, the only Fall Classic which would conclude joylessly for him.

Provided is a spectacular relic from that pivotal season of Lou's storied career, likely signed during the Bombers' World Series meeting with the St. Louis Cardinals, as indicated by the short panel's "American League Champions 1926" notation. This same faultlessly bold black fountain pen ink supplies twenty-seven autographs from the Bronx' fourth pennant winners, notably Ruth, Gehrig, Lazzeri, Combs, Pennock, Hoyt, Shocker, Collins, Koenig, Dugan, Meusel, Jones and many more. Not a single signature suggests a hint of its advanced age, averaging a stunning 9/10. All stamping remains equally unscathed from time's ravages, with the pale horsehide's creamy tone the only variation from its original state. Unquestionably one of the finest 1926 Yankee balls by virtue of aesthetics alone, and the undisputed champ with the added provenancial appeal as Gehrig's personal model. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
