    1930 Lou Gehrig Handwritten Signed Postcard. The unfailing vigilance of the Iron Horse did not end at the stadium walls, a fact in evidence here as the Hall of Fame first baseman cordially replies to a young fan's request for a signed ball. Gehrig's 8/10 fountain pen ink provides the following: "Dear Billy, It is a little hard to get a ball just now so why not come up to Boston some day. Believe I can help you then. Lou Gehrig." The postcard is likewise addressed in Gehrig's hand. It is postmarked "March 10, 1930" from the Yanks' spring training grounds of St. Petersburg, Florida, with the verso featuring an image of the bridge to its famous beaches. Some handling wear with a corner crease, but nothing that detracts from the writing. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
