1927 Large and incredibly intimate portrait photograph of Lou Gehrig from the New York Yankees as he posed at the ballpark during the famous "Murderers Row" season. A famous photograph that was even used for the cover of the 1928 Sporting News Record Book, this is one of only a few known to exist and perhaps the best of the bunch. The offered Underwood and Underwood photograph carries full borders and a deep, perfect image, and it has a stamp and full paper caption on the back. Offered here for the first time ever and guaranteed to get a Type 1 from PSA.
