    Description

    1938 Lou Gehrig Signed Photograph. The water tower still stands today just on the outskirts of downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, where the great Iron Horse was days short of attending the inaugural screening of his silver screen debut "Rawhide" when this photo was snapped. That's a studio worker jabbering at him as he politely poses for a fan's camera, as handwritten text from the original owner notes on verso. Gehrig's blue fountain pen signature rates a strong 8/10 on the one-of-a-kind 3.5x4.5" shot, and appears in rare and desirable unpersonalized format. The photo is free of any condition distractions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
