Poignant 1939 photograph of the "Iron Horse" Lou Gehrig as he gathers with his teammates in the Yankees dugout and says goodbye to the game of baseball. There are smiles all around despite the fact that the news and atmosphere was sad as the biggest star in the game was going to die! Issued by the International News and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well, it presents well with just some minimal handling wear keeping it from a perfect grade.
