    Description

    1930 Lou Gehrig Signed Christmas Card with Mailing Envelope. The Iron Horse sends a simple Christmas greeting to his ex-girlfriend. Gehrig's 9/10 black fountain pen ink signature turns this simple monogrammed (note the "LG" above the printed poetic stanza) notecard into a collecting treasure. Included is the original mailing envelope, penned in Gehrig's distinctive, elegant script. The card and envelope exhibit minor age toning but no other issues worthy of note. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The Lou Gehrig Collection, Part II.

    The noble Iron Horse rides once again, and for the final time within the confines of The Lou Gehrig Collection presented by Heritage Auctions. The incredible offering of personally owned material from the Yankees legend first appeared within our August 2011 "Platinum Night" event. We made sure to hold a few great pieces back for our November auction, and this is one of them. This material was left to the consignor's family by Lou's mother Christina Gehrig upon her passing in the 1950's, and makes its hobby debut here.
