One of the most incredible and lasting images ever taken on the diamond is that of a sobbing Lou Gehrig as he recounts his days with the New York Yankees, proclaiming himself "the luckiest man on the face of the earth" despite a terminal illness. A rare image in any form, this is a 1970's re-strike which is still a nearly fifty year old example. Exceptional condition and it presents like an original from 1939.
