    Description

    1939 Lou Gehrig Retires Original News Service Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. While Lou Gehrig is forcing a smile, we know it must have been demoralizing to have to retire from the game he loved. This poignant 8.5x6.5" photograph shows The Iron Horse and Joe McCarthy in the dugout when it was announced the superstar could no longer play baseball. A paper caption is affixed on the reverse. Some light handling wear. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Type 1.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
