    Description

    1937 Lou Gehrig Signed Original Sketch. Our sincere hope is that George Douglass became an illustration artist at some point in his life. Consigned by a family member, this impressive 7.25x10.25" original sketch of The Iron Horse can rival any newspaper art creation. An image of Gehrig is masterfully rendered while a smaller action scene is on the lower half. Gehrig had to have been taken aback when this was presented for his autograph. The Yankee great signed against a light spot and personalized the signature "To George Best Wishes" in bold black fountain pen. Some paper loss is found on the top which had tape added along the way. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
