1928 Photograph of the great Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth as they sign the Baseball that was the LAST OUT from the World Series and present it to Governor Al Smith! Incredible image of the two superstars creating a World Class piece of memorabilia. Images of Babe and Lou signing autographs together from their early playing days are quite rare and this is a fantastic example! Condition is quite nice with a few chips on the left corners and the clarity is great. A wonderful moment from the past forever captured and preserved and somewhere this Baseball has survived and it would be worth a fortune! We have seen one other example of this image with Gehrig signing, but this is the first with Ruth holding the pen! Issued by the International News and stamped on the back with a paper caption as well.
