This lot features a first generation wire photo signed "Best wishes to Dan Lou Gehrig". The photo measures 5.5 x 7 inches overall. This original International Newsreel wire photo is boldly signed by "The Iron Horse" in blue steel tip fountain pen. Gehrig played with the Yankees from 1923–1939. Gehrig was an All-Star seven consecutive times,] a Triple Crown winner once, an American League Most Valuable Player twice and a member of six World Series champion teams. He had a career .340 batting average, .632 slugging average, and a .447 on base average. He hit 493 home runs and had 1,995 RBI. He still has the highest ratio of runs scored plus runs batted in per 100 plate appearances (35.08) and per 100 games (156.7) among Hall of Fame players. In 1939, he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame and was the very first MLB player to have his uniform number (#4) retired by his team. Accompanied by a full Letter of authenticity from JSA/James Spence Authentication. We can not find a similar photo, reproduction or otherwise ever being sold. Clearly a unique piece one-of-a-kind Lou Gehrig signed item. Rare Lou Gehrig photos of this caliber signed this boldly typically sell in the $8,000-10,000 range.
