    1934 Lou Gehrig Signed Tour of Japan Photograph, PSA/DNA NM 7.
    The uniform is certainly familiar--Heritage sold it for for over a half million dollars in 2011--but we've never seen this particular photograph of the Iron Horse wearing it. This is one of several Tour of Japan lots within this Platinum Night auction consigned by a Japanese national, a fresh-to-the-hobby rarity documenting the most important foreign excursion in the history of our national pastime.

    The postcard-sized (5.5x3.5") photograph is autographed in rare, unpersonalized format, Gehrig's black fountain pen ink assessed at a NM 7 level by the experts at PSA/DNA. The photo exhibits a moderate degree of handling wear, with evidence of scrapbook removal on verso, but our catalog imagery should properly convey that the aesthetics remain world class. One of the most intriguing Gehrig signed photos we've had the privilege to present to the collecting community. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM 7. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
