    1936 Lou Gehrig Signed Government Postcard. Just a few months before embarking upon the greatest season of his Hall of Fame career, one in which he earned the American League M.V.P. award with chart-topping figures in home runs, slugging, walks and runs scored, the Iron Horse returned this government postcard to an autograph seeker. His brief inscription in perfect 10/10 black ink reads, "Best Wishes, Leonard, Lou Gehrig." The address is likewise penned in Gehrig's flawless black ink, though a single drop of water on the second letter of the town's name should be noted. The card itself has a barely visible wrinkle that bisects it horizontally, but this can only be spotted upon especially close examination. The inscription and autograph absolutely present as flawless. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
