Description:
1927 New York Yankees Infield Signed Photograph from The Lou Gehrig Collection, PSA Mint 9. Though this infield unit remained unchanged from second baseman Tony Lazzeri's 1926 rookie season until Joe Dugan's departure for the Boston Braves at the close of 1928 World Series, we are definitively able to peg this image to the center of that three-year span. Advanced baseball photography hobbyists will recognize the image as part of a famous Yankee Stadium photo shoot dating to the storied Murderer's Row season of 1927, when the man at far left earned his first MVP Award and World Championship ring. Already a spectacular artifact free of any consideration of provenance, this 6.5x8.5" photograph is further enhanced by its status as the Iron Horse's personal keepsake, one of the six featured lots within this "Platinum Night" auction from The Lou Gehrig Collection.

Our catalog imagery tells no lies--the black fountain pen signatures of Lou Gehrig, Tony Lazzeri, Mark Koenig and Joe Dugan survive with the same 9/10 boldness with which they were originally applied, and the photo itself likewise presents flawlessly. An "International Newsreel" stamp appears on verso, as do the remnants of the paper caption. Unquestionably one of the finest and most desirable autographed pieces to derive from baseball's greatest team, and from its noblest servant, no less. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, Mint 9. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
