Large 1938 portrait photograph of the greatest baseball player of the 1930's Lou Gehrig. At first the image appears like his "Farmers Only" profile picture, but in reality it is a studio shot from Hollywood to promote his upcoming role as the leading man in "Rawhide" a western film! While images from this movie appear from time to time, the head shots of Gehrig are actually quite rare with tis being the best we have ever seen! Photo is clear and bold with the only flaw being a tack hole on there lower right corner. A fantastic image from the twilight of Gehrig's career!
