    Description

    Unique 1930's Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig Premiums Pair (2). NOTE: We have been informed another set of these two photo premiums does exist. These are not just candid images taken by a fan.

    With literally no information other than a cryptic "520Y" stamp on the backs we offer these possibly unique photo premiums from the 1930's featuring two of Baseball's all-time greats - Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. While some may claim they are mere candid photos we will disagree based on the facsimile autographs in the photos which no fan would pay to do. Gehrig adds the salutation, "With Best Wishes." They are on a thin photo paper and measure 2-5/8 x 4-11/16" much like the other premium issues of the same era. They are quite possibly prototypes as the subjects, two of the most popular New York Yankees on the planet would be the salesmen one could have. There delicate nature has resulted in condition issues. Both have creasing and a single pin hole near the top center. Gehrig also has some surface scuffing, there are two pieces of tape enforcing tears affecting Ruth. Backs are blank aside from the mentioned stamp. They are 100% vintage and as a pair of baseball titans together make for an intriguing and mysterious addition to any collection.
