    1938 Lou Gehrig Signed Photograph. If you haven't yet watched his 1938 motion picture Rawhide, you must immediately purchase the DVD on the Internet. The scene in which the Iron Horse wins a bar room brawl by beaning the bad guys with billiard balls is alone worth the price of admission. Here we find the classic promotional photo for the film, Gehrig's navy blue Yankees cap replaced with a ten gallon hat, a kerchief tied around his neck. The 8x10" image is inscribed at lower left, "To Frank, With Kindest Personal Regards, Cordially Lou Gehrig." His black fountain pen ink registers at a conservative 8/10. A tack hole appears at the top border, and a single vertical crease grazes Gehrig's left ear, well removed from the inscription and only particularly apparent at certain angles to the light. As our catalog imagery should properly attest, the photo presents wonderfully. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
