    Description

    1939 Lou Gehrig Oversized Vintage Photograph Print from Original Negative Signed by Photographer Murray Becker. It was the most heartbreaking day in baseball history. The Iron Horse said goodbye to the baseball world and gave the "Luckiest Man" speech which had the entire stadium in tears. This oversized 11x14" photograph shows the baseball icon wiping away a tear. Photographer Murray Becker, who captured the photo, signed this on the the side in ink. The autograph has faded considerably. No markings appear on the reverse. The photo is taped to a mat.
