Some photographs capture your attention for a moment and others provide enough detail and clarity to capture your imagination for what seems like an eternity. This image of Lou Gehrig is not significant for what it pictures (a Spring Training game with the Cardinals) but for HOW it is. Gehrig is caught in a moment of suspended animation where he is at the pinnacle of his follow through, about to drop the bat and dash to first. His uniform flutters and the power in his legs is evident through layers of wool. The image is so clear that the grain of the wood can be seen with the naked eye and each wrinkle on the jerseys and umpires uniform are also perfectly clear. An exceptional image in great condition which ranks among the most captivating images we have ever offered!
