    Description

    1929 Bob Shawkey Original News Photographs Lot of 2, PSA/DNA Type 1 from The Lou Gehrig Collection.

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

    He played Fall Classic ball for both the Athletics and the Yankees, but by the time these photos were taken, the right-handed ace was back in the minors and nearing forty years of age, his glory days behind him. One suspects an enduring friendship with Lou Gehrig was the reason for the appearance of these images in the Gehrig collection. One photo has a heavy horizontal crease, and both exhibit some chipping. Standing photo has original paper caption on verso. Both are stamped "Wide World Photos." Dimensions 10x8". LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1 for each. Letter of provenance from consignor.
