    Description

    1919-22 Lou Gehrig Original Snapshot Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1 from The Lou Gehrig Collection.

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

    If you've ever seen a photograph of a shirtless Gehrig, you know that he sported the kind of muscled physique one would expect from a power hitter, much moreso than that of his legendary teammate Babe Ruth. This wonderful snapshot--one of the very earliest confirmed images of Gehrig--suggests that Gehrig was a pioneer of weight training, that his tremendous strength and durability wasn't entirely the function of his German genetics. A blank back leaves us with no further clues as to the circumstances surrounding this image, but PSA/DNA photo expert Henry Yee places the date in Gehrig's later teenaged years. Dimensions 3.75x5.75". Small tear near lower right corner is tape-repaired on verso, otherwise fine. Letter of provenance from consignor.
