    Description

    Exceedingly rare specimen from the year Gehrig broke Everett Scott's streak record!

    1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig #92, Signed, PSA/DNA Authentic. Presented is the last of three signed Goudeys on offer within this Platinum Night event, each consigned by the elderly Depression-era Washington Senators fan who personally acquired the autographs as a boy. Within his recently rediscovered box of childhood baseball treasures resided an autograph album brimming with American League stars, the only National League exceptions being members of the 1933 New York Giants, who traveled to Griffith Stadium to meet the Senators in that year's World Series, as well as a program for that Fall Classic battle. The autograph album is on offer within the Final Session portion of this Platinum Night auction.

    It was that year that the fourteen-year old youngster collected the first great bubble gum issue in baseball card history, a set that joins the 1909-11 T206 and 1952 Topps Baseball in a hobby triumvirate fondly dubbed "The Big Three." Certainly Gehrig ranks among the most valuable residents of that issue, but this particular specimens distinguishes itself as one of just a small handful autographed by the Iron Horse himself. It was this 1933 season that Gehrig played in his 1,308th consecutive game, breaking former Yankee Everett Scott's record. Gehrig's black fountain pen autograph rates a solid 7.5/10, with the card itself in the G-VG condition typical of survivors from this issue. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Authentic.
