    1929 Pontiac "A Hit - and a Hitter" Lou Gehrig Ad Production Art Photo. Baseball wasn't over for Lou Gehrig after sweeping victories in the 1927 and 1928 World Series. He was half of the famous "Bustin' Babes" and "Larrupin' Lou Gehrig" barnstorming tours. In an era of $100 Million contracts, it seems odd two of baseball's finest wouldn't just relax in the off season. Offered is a rare photo of the production art for an intended newspaper ad for Pontiac featuring Gehrig and the newest 1929 Pontiac "Big Six" model which Gehrig used for spring training. The approx. 7" x 5" glossy photo has "REFERRED-E. DEPT," "APR 529" and "N. E. A." stamped on the back along with two pencil notations. The item presents excellent-mint bet there is a pencil checkmark next to "Gehrig" and light creasing in one corner. A super rare photo of an ad our team has never seen before.
