    Description

    1927 Lou Gehrig Original Photograph by Charles Conlon--Used for 1933 Goudey Card, PSA/DNA Type 1.

    UPDATE: Please note that this is a photo that came directly from the Underwood & Underwood archives and therefore has the original embossed "Do Not Remove, File Copy" raised blindstamp, which can be seen on the front of the photo in two locations.

    Splendid and important image from Gehrig's 1927 MVP and championship season was used for the Iron Horse's 1933 Goudey cards #92 and #160. Taken by legendary baseball photographer Charles Conlon for Underwood & Underwood. Measures 7x9". This is arguably the most significant "trading card-related" offering we've presented since the photo used for Mickey Mantle's 1951 Bowman commanded $71,700 in July 2015. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
