    Description

    1930's Lou Gehrig Signed Magazine Photograph. You couldn't ask for a more appealing venue for a strong Lou Gehrig autograph than this amazing image from leading sports photographer Charles Conlon, who snapped this shot in his capacity as photojournalist for "Baseball Magazine." While we are most accustomed to seeing the Iron Horse wielding the lumber, he demonstrates an artful grace here as he tends to the first sack, a coating of infield dirt clinging to his pinstriped flannel. Gehrig's form is silhouetted against a dark background that fortuitously pales at his feet to offer an ideal home for the black fountain pen autograph. The signature boldness falls in the 8/10 to 9/10 range, and the 7.5x10.25" image presents as a stunning NRMT-MT. Tasteful matting and framing expands the final dimensions to 15x18". LOA from PSA/DNA.
