    Description

    1931 Tour of Japan Team Original Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1 from The Lou Gehrig Collection.

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


    Superb team shot captures the full roster of the 1931 Tour of Japan barnstormers, a cast including Hall of Fame legends Gehrig, Grove, Cochrane, Frisch, Maranville, Simmons and Kelly. Veteran collectors are well aware that material relating to the earlier of the two Depression-era baseball journeys across the Pacific are far more scarce, and this is one of the finest photographs we've encountered, even without the aspect of Gehrig's personal ownership. A small bend at the tip of the upper left corner is the only fault to report. Dimensions 4.75x6.5". Blank back. Letter of provenance from consignor.
