    Wally Pipp Signed Index Card. Wally Pipp played more games from 1915-25 than any other Yankee. He was the original long-ball hitter, leading the American League with 12 in 1916. He hit cleanup behind Babe Ruth, who joined the team in 1919. His career has been overshadowed with the headache that changed the history of the Yankees and the game of baseball. Pipp complained of a headache one day and asked Yankee skipper Miller Huggins for the day off. Huggins granted his request and replaced him with a young kid named Gehrig. We all know what happened next. Very rare signed index card which has been personalized "To Bob Lugan with every best wish," Wally Pipp. Signature grades 9/10. Reverse of index card has postage stamp affixed from Grand Rapids MI, Oct. 1 1945. JSA Auction LOA.
