    1939 New York Yankees Signed Spring Training Roster with Gehrig. It goes without saying that any autograph from the mighty Iron Horse is a collecting treasure, but those rare few deriving from his final season in 1939 are particularly coveted by the advanced collector. Here we encounter an example definitively dated to that sad Centennial season by its presence on a "Yankee Player Roster for 1939" issued to fans on hand for spring training in St. Petersburg, Florida. Gehrig's autograph appears in 8/10 pencil on verso of the 6.5" square page, joined by the likes of Ruffing (8/10 pencil), DiMaggio (9/10 ink) and Gomez (7/10 pencil). On print side we find quite light pencil autographs from McCarthy, Dickey and a few others. The page exhibits handling wear with a heavy fold line that remains clear of Gehrig. Also here is an unused scorecard for a 1939 spring training meeting of the Dodgers and Cardinals, Good. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
