    1928 Lou Gehrig Signed Original Photograph. A year after Murderer's Row, the Yankees were still atop the baseball landscape when the curtain fell on the 1928 season. Lou Gehrig was at his absolute best as he hit .374 with 147 RBIs and twenty-seven home runs. The Yankees won 101 games and swept through the Cardinals in World Series competition. This 2.5x4.25" photo was taken before the Yankees and White Sox game August 6, 1928. Gehrig finished with a hit and run batted in during a 5-4 loss. The Iron Horse carefully signed the front of this photo in 9/10 fountain pen. The only thing keeping this from elite status is a slight hitch in the "L" in Lou. The game's date is written on back in pencil. Black paper marks appear on the corners, undoubtedly from removal of a scrapbook. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
