    Description

    1938 Lou Gehrig Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. The strong grip of Lou Gehrig's hands on the bat are the subject of this Wide World Photos news photograph from 1938. A wonderful close-up image of Gehrig from the waist up, the portrait measures 7x9" and includes original slug on verso. It is hard to believe that just a year later, the hero would be sidelined forever from the game he was so passionate about. Good condition with a few minor creases and a slight waviness to the photo.

    More information about Lou Gehrig.
