    Description

    1930's Lou Gehrig Studio Original Photograph. This lot represents material directly from "The Christy Walsh Estate," which has been in storage since his passing in 1955 and now brought to surface by his descendants. All of this correspondence have been stored in the original files Christy had since 1921 and represents his own personal mementos, business affairs etc. particularly that with Babe Ruth. The first true super agent!

    A seldom seen photo displaying the strength and intensity in Gehrig's batting posture. Walsh's notation on the reverse reads "Lou Gehrig in his prime, none greater, none cleaner, none more loveable." Amazing 8x10" image exhibits light wear.
