    Description

    1927 Lou Gehrig Hands Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1 from The Lou Gehrig Collection.

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


    Like the close-up of Gehrig's feet likewise appearing in this auction, this shot will unquestionably draw comparisons to renowned lensman Charles Conlon's work, but PSA/DNA photo expert Henry Yee tells us that this does not derive from his archive. It's a masterfully executed image however, offering fascinating detail of pinstriped flannel, wood grain, and powerful hands. A couple corners are chipped, but such condition issues must be forgiven in light of the power of the work. Scrap of original paper caption and "Wide World Photos" stamping appears on verso. Dimensions 10x8". LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1. Letter of provenance from consignor.
