One of the last, if not THE last image of Lou Gehrig actually playing baseball is this image from 6-22-1939 showing the sick Yankee Slugger in full uniform and assisting Red Ruffing in hitting fungoes to his Yankee team mates. While there are hundreds of images of Gehrig from 1939 after he retired, this is the only one we know of that shows him actively playing baseball! Condition is fantastic, issued by Acme and with full paper caption on the back.
