    Description

    Circa 1960 Wally Pipp Single Signed Photograph. He will always be remembered most for giving up his spot to the ""Iron Horse," Lou Gehrig. Yet, Wally Pipp enjoyed a nice career in baseball from 1913 to 1928. In the deadball era, Pipp actually led the league twice in home runs, while his .281 career batting average and nearly 2,000 hits are solid stats. Although some may believe Pipp and Gehrig were rivals, in reality, it was Pipp who scouted Gehrig and convinced Miller Huggins to sign him. Pipp personally worked on developing Gehrig at first base. This offered 8x10" photograph of Pipp is signed in the bottom border in 9/10 ink, and the image does exhibit some creasing. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
