    Description

    Circa 1925 Lou Gehrig Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1 from The Lou Gehrig Collection.

    UPDATE: This lot includes a letter of provenance from the consignor.

    Some prophetic text on the paper caption affixed to the back of this spectacular rookie-era shot: "It is not impossible that Lou may yet become a potential rival of Babe Ruth when it comes to socking homers." Here we find the young Iron Horse leaping for the sky in a time-tested standard of early baseball photographic poses. Photo measures 8.5x6.5" and presents nearly flawlessly, with "Acme Newspictures" stamping joining the original paper caption on verso. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1. Letter of provenance from consignor.
