    Description

    1928 Lou Gehrig Wire Photograph. Issued at the close of the 1928 regular season, one which the Yanks would cap with a second consecutive World Series sweep, this terrific news photograph offers a great view of a youthful Iron Horse tending to his first base duties. Damage at the upper right will be evident in our online photography, but it should also be clear how easily this could be hidden with a simple matting job. Paper caption affixed to verso. Size is 6.5x8.5".

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
