    Description

    Early 1930's Lou Gehrig Signed Photograph by George Burke, PSA/DNA NM 7. Eight decades later, and the power of the swing that launched 493 home runs still resonates from this masterful image captured by the lens of the great George Burke, whose photography serves as the primary photographic record of the Depression-era game. The legendary first baseman inscribes this 3.5x5.5" silver gelatin photo to a buddy, writing, "To a real Pal--Dick, May I see you often, Cordially Lou Gehrig." His black fountain pen ink survives the test of time admirably, evoking a rating of NM 7 from the experts at PSA/DNA. Photo itself exhibits only the lightest corner touches, and is stamped on verso with Burke's "RDM Studio" logo. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM 7. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
