1938 Photograph of Lou Gehrig during his final September as a New York Yankee in full uniform and arguing with the umpire over a ground rule. Gehrig is hot and showing his competitive side that is not often seen making this a rare photograph. A touching image when you think about the fact that Gehrig was already dying when the photographer snapped this photo, he just didn't know it yet! Issued by Acme and with a stamp and paper caption on the back, this is a fine condition image with nice clarity and contrast.
