    Description

    1939 Lou Gehrig Day Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. Heartbreaking image finds the noble Iron Horse overcome with emotion as he acknowledges the love of tens of thousands of Yankee Stadium fans, moments from delivering his immortal "Luckiest Man" speech on the Fourth of July, 1939. Fellow Yankees legend Babe Ruth watches at far left. Few twentieth century sports photos are as significant. Original photo measures approximately 7x9" in dimension and bears the clipped and captioned newspaper image it spawned on reverse. Moderate handling wear, but all faults must be excused in light of the peerless significance. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
