Large 1938 photograph of famous New York Yankees superstar Lou Gehrig as he is surrounded by teammates and reporters on the field, and his new Buick that was presented to the first baseman. A rare image we have never seen before, this was issued by Underwood and Underwood, stamped on the back and with a full paper caption as well. The license plate on the care is from 1936 and the style is a '36, but the exact date is unknown but a user has informed us it is from 1938. Gehrig is clearly visible standing on the drivers side and posing for photos from the photographers on the field!
