    Description

    Circa 1938 Lou Gehrig Signed Photograph. Fine image of the bravest Yankee of them all was snapped shortly before the cruel diagnosis forced an end to his pinstriped tenure. He poses at the dugout steps, having just selected a bat from the neatly organized row before him, upon which he has penned the words "To my little pal Maurice, with Kindest Regards, Lou Gehrig." The 8x10" photo exhibits a significant degree of wear, with creasing and some paper loss on verso, but our catalog imagery should properly indicate that the overall visual appeal of the photo remains quite strong despite these faults. The black fountain pen inscription and autograph rates an unimprovable 10/10. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
