    Description

    1928 Yankee Stadium Opening Day Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1 from The Lou Gehrig Collection.

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

    Ruth and Gehrig stand side by side (and look at little Eddie Bennett at the top of the steps) in this marvelous anthem image captured prior to a chilly Opening Day game for the defending/repeating World Champs. Some edge and corner wear is apparent, with chipping at right edge, but it's a beauty nonetheless. Paper caption and "International News Photo" stamping on verso. Dimensions 10x8". LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1. Letter of provenance from consignor.
