Description

    1930's Lou Gehrig Single Signed Baseball. It has been said that for every one hundred Babe Ruth singles, you'll find one solo Lou Gehrig, and even that may be overstating the supply of the latter. After all, Gehrig was quoted as saying, "I'm not a headline guy. I know that as long as I was following Ruth to the plate I could have stood on my head and no one would have known the difference." Though this is more of an illustration of Gehrig's tremendous modesty than a tongue-in-cheek statement of fact, it is certainly undeniable that Lou just did not receive a fraction of the autograph requests that Ruth did, leaving collectors six decades after his passing to scrap for the scant few available singles. We're pleased to present a rather nice specimen here, an OAL (Harridge) ball featuring a 5/10 to 6/10 sweet spot signature from the brave and dedicated Yankee. The ball is lightly and evenly toned, with only the lightest hint of the original stamping still visible. An inspirational piece to be sure, as all artifacts touched by the hand of Gehrig are. LOA from PSA/DNA.
