    Description

    1920's Lou Gehrig Large Original Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1 from The Lou Gehrig Collection.

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

    Veteran collectors know that oversized photography from the pre-war era of baseball history is quite rare due to the considerably higher costs of production compared to standard formats, and this ultra-rare pose (and, of course, Gehrig's personal ownership) further amplifies the enormous appeal. Some chipping at the edges must be acknowledged, but this 14x11" sepia-toned shot presents wonderfully despite its flaws. Back is blank. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1. Letter of provenance from consignor.
