    Description

    Circa 1934 Lou Gehrig Signed "Baseball Magazine" Photograph. Artful portrait of the Iron Horse was claimed from the inside cover of Baseball Magazine, and finds the tragic slugger posing for the camera in his pinstriped best. It is one of three such treasures within this auction, bearing the signature of the iconic Hall of Famer pictured. Gehrig's 10/10 black fountain pen inscription reads, "To Sandy, Best Wishes, Lou Gehrig." Very minor faults at left center and upper right corner are well clear of the inscription, and are mentioned only for the sake of full disclosure. The viewable portion of the 7.5x9.5" image otherwise exhibits no noteworthy troubles. Matted to 11x14" for easy framing. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $5,000 - $8,000.
