The power of Lou Gehrig is legendary, and his fielding was equally a thing of beauty. What is often overlooked in the arsenal of Gehrig however is the determination to do whatever it took to win a game. Here he is seen trying to steal a base against the Giants during the 1936 World Series at the Polo Grounds. Number 4 is flashing down the line and starting his slide into what would be an out, but man he looked good doing it! A fantastic image in beautiful condition that captures Gehrig in a rarely seen action pose on the bases! Issued by Acme and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well.
