    Description

    Circa 1930 Lou Gehrig & Babe Ruth Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1 from The Lou Gehrig Collection.

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

    "Hurry up, Babe! I'm gaining on you!" Gehrig completes his home run trot just moments after Ruth touches the plate in this action shot from the Golden Age of Yankeedom. A lost paper caption on verso leaves the specifics of the contest a mystery, but any image of Ruth and Gehrig is a treasure. Photo measures 8x10", with "International News Photos, Inc." stamping on verso. Small chip to border at upper right corner is the most significant condition issue. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1. Letter of provenance from consignor.

    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.
