Description

    Circa 1927 Lou Gehrig Signed Photograph. It's an image we've all seen hundreds of times, but almost without fail as a double-signed modern reprint. So it's always a welcome surprise to encounter the genuine article, the original 8x10" that was issued to fans during the famous Bustin' Babes vs. Larrupin' Lou's barnstorming tour that brought the Yankee pantheon to the vast expanses of America too distant from a Major League stadium to see these legends any other way.

    The "Yours Truly" signatures below the waists of these iconic sluggers are part of the print, but the inscription within the photo's upper quadrant is the genuine article, applied by the Iron Horse in 7/10 black fountain pen ink. It reads, "To my true & sincere friend Harry Hasner, Most Sincerely, Lou Gehrig." The photo exhibits a degree of handling and storage wear, but the bulk of these concerns are confined to the border areas, leaving the central focus and the Gehrig inscription largely unaffected. Photo is matted and framed to a museum-quality 17.5x19.5". Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
