    1930's Lou Gehrig Original News Photograph--Image Used on Monument Park Plaque, PSA/DNA Type 1. If this classic portrait photograph of the Iron Horse seems familiar, there's good cause for that. The bronze plaque in Yankee Stadium's Monument Park that honors the stalwart first baseman was based upon the shot, and it appears upon the highly collectible July 4, 1941 pictorial ticket stub for the Lou Gehrig Memorial Game when the plaque was unveiled. Taken during his prime, the chest up photo is a soulful study of quiet greatness. "Cosmo Sileo Co." is rubber stamped on back along with a pencil notation "Gehrig." Tape yellowing appears on back as well. Slight paper loss is on the upper left corner, far away from featured subject. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
