    Description

    1935 Lou Gehrig Testimonial Dinner Oversized Photograph. It was hard to find fault with Lou Gehrig. He was a gentleman in the truest sense, treated his mother with the utmost respect and always showed up to play. It would be nearly impossible for Gehrig to match his 1934 Triple Crown season. The baseball world paid tribute to Gehrig April 14, 1935 at the New York Hotel Biltmore. Joe McCarthy, James J. Braddock, Jim Crowley and Bill Corum were in attendance that night as the Iron Horse was celebrated. This 20x12" photo features Gehrig at the center table, standing. The packed room is there to honor the pinstriped hero. Edge wear is present and the left corner has a pin hole. Surface creases appear on the left side and the reverse has some paper loss. A "Standard Flashlight Company" rubber stamp appears on back. The is the first such photo we found from the dinner.
