    1934 Lou Gehrig Tour of Japan Oversized Original Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. On a 1934 Tour of Japan team laden with Hall of Fame legends, two names commanded the most attention. Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig were the rock stars who had Japanese baseball fans in a frenzy. While Ruth tended to garner headlines, Gehrig usually settled into the background. This artistic look at Gehrig (11.75x9") shows The Iron Horse in uniform and was taken from a lower angle. Gehrig is peering into the future on the oversized photo. "Taken in Japan 1934" is neatly scribed on the lower left corner. Blank backed. Two small creases penetrate the lower left corner. We searched previous auction results and have not found another image similar to this listing. Full LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1
