    1939 New York Yankees Signed Photograph with Gehrig. As the Yankees posed under the hot St. Petersburg, Florida sun, where they were preparing for what would be yet another World Championship season, not a soul could have known that in several weeks' time the Iron Horse would come to the end of the trail. Gehrig's early departure from the 1939 line-up makes autographs from this season exceptionally scarce, especially on photographs such as this one, which offers his strong ink signature at the bottom border of the image. A crease and patch of foxing nips the edge of this essential ink, but does little to detract. Also present are signatures from DiMaggio, Dickey, Gomez and eight more, including young Babe Dahlgren, who would assume the duties of Yankees first sacker when Lou's 2,130 game streak came to an end this year. Scattered creasing and tearing, with some border loss at upper left, must be excused given the importance of this rare artifact. When matted and framed, the photo will still present very well. LOA from PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
