1936 Head to toe batting photograph of Lou Gehrig from the New York Yankees as he takes a mighty hack and watches the ball sail away. One of his better batting photographs we have handled, this was used to make Gehrig's 1973 Topps baseball card (#472) and is the only vintage example we know of in the hobby! There are some editorial marks from publication, but the clarity and quality are strong. Issued by the International News and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well.
