    1941 Lou Gehrig Memorial Game Full Ticket - Rare Purple Variation. On the two year anniversary of Gehrig's heartwrenching "Luckiest Man" farewell, the Yankees scheduled an event to honor their Captain once again, this time with even greater sadness in their hearts following the report of his passing a month earlier. The Independence Day game was rained out and as such was rescheduled for the sixth, when fans were treated to forty-seventh and forty-eighth games of Joe DiMaggio's famous hitting streak in a doubleheader against the Athletics. The rain out likely is the cause of this exceedingly scarce ticket's survival in unused format. This is the first purple variation (mezzanine) we have encountered. The ticket has two minor abrasions on front and an inconsequential stain mark on the reverse. Encapsulated by PSA, Authentic.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - up.
