    Description

    1938 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. Though his batting and slugging averages of .295 and .523 would be more than satisfactory for mere mortals, each represented a significant decline from Gehrig's 1937 numbers, an unnerving signal of the dark days to come. Dating from the Iron Horse's final complete season, and the third of four consecutive Yankees World Championships, this OAL (Harridge) ball fitting finds its captain on the sweet spot, surrounded by twenty teammates including DiMaggio, Dickey, Gomez, Gordon, Pearson, Selkirk, Crosetti and Babe Dahlgren, who would take Gehrig's first sack duties at the close of the former's 2,130 consecutive game streak the following season. Signature quality falls within a consistent range of 6/10 to 8/10. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
