    Description

    1946 Stephen Clark Signed Letter Regarding the Spreading of Lou Gehrig's Ashes on The Hall of Fame Grounds from The Lou Gehrig Collection.

    UPDATE: This lot includes a letter of provenance from the consignor.

    Following his death in 1941, Lou Gehrig's parents and widow became increasingly concerned that his grave would be desecrated and considered having his ashes moved to the Hall of Fame - a suitable resting place indeed. This typed letter, on National Baseball Hall of Fame stationery, is signed by the museum's founder Stephen Carlton Clark on the bottom. The body discusses what would need to happen for Gehrig's ashes to be moved to the Hall of Fame. Mailing and a vertical folds are found. The signature is 10/10. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA. Letter of provenance from consignor.
