    Description

    Circa 1930 Lou Gehrig Signed Congratulatory Card. A round of applause in the form of a greeting card from the Gehrig's to Paddy's daughter Elizabeth O'Connor on the occasion of her recent graduation. Elizabeth and Lou were a romantic item at one time, and it is clearly the legendary first baseman's handwriting beneath the printed sentiment. The green fountain pen ink survives with flawless intensity, and the card itself is likewise lacking any condition caveats. A simple yet enormously appealing keepsake from Gehrig's off-field life. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The Paddy O'Connor Collection.

    This is one of sixteen lots deriving from the personal collection of Paddy O'Connor, a native of County Kerry, Ireland who quickly discovered an aptitude for our National Pastime upon his immigration to the States. O'Connor's baseball career included brief terms in the American, National and Federal Leagues, and most notably membership with the World Championship 1909 Pittsburgh Pirates. The material offered here is consigned directly by the O'Connor family.

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