    Description

    1927 Lou Gehrig Signed Bustin' Babes vs. Larrupin' Lous Barnstorming Photograph. It's an image we've all seen hundreds of times, but almost without fail as a double-signed modern reprint. So it's always a welcome surprise to see the genuine article, the original 8x10" that was issued to fans during the famous Bustin' Babes vs. Larrupin' Lou's barnstorming tour that brought the Yankee pantheon to the vast expanses of America too distant from a Major League stadium to see these legends any other way.

    This particular example met with one of the two slugging legends pictured, a man who had just won the 1927 American League MVP Award and still had more than a full decade of unfailing service to the Majors ahead. His black fountain pen ink appears a few inches above his facsimile signature, reading, "To Arthur Lysat, Sincerely Lou Gehrig." The writing competes a bit for contrast but rates a solid 7/10. The photo itself presents without any flaws worthy of note, and is far more sharply registered than most of the examples we've encountered, which tend to be a bit hazy. It's professionally matted and framed to final dimensions of 13x15". Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
