    Early 1930's Lou Gehrig Signed Photograph by George Burke, PSA/DNA Mint 9. It could be our favorite photographic portrait of the noble Iron Horse that we've ever encountered, and it's little wonder that it was captured by the lens of the great George Burke, whose photography serves as the primary photographic record of the Depression-era game. The Hall of Fame first baseman strikes a pensive pose at the heart of his durability streak in this 3.5x5.5" silver gelatin photo, inscribing the pale region of his Yankees jersey, "To Dick, May I always be worthy of your friendship, Sincerely Lou Gehrig." His black fountain pen ink remains as bold as the date of its application, inspiring a glowing "Mint 9" assessment from the experts at PSA/DNA. Photo itself is in similarly fine condition, and stamped on verso with Burke's "RDM Studio" logo. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Mint 9. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

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