Famous 1923 photograph of rookie Lou Gehrig from the New York Yankees and showing him with his bat and posing for a photographer. One of the few images of Gehrig that absolutely dates to 1923, this is a slightly later restrike (c. 1950's) and done in an artistic way that presents beautifully. A cool image with about seventy years of age to it! The photo has some tape at the top and bottom borders from editorial use but it looks great otherwise and is being offered here for the first time ever, fresh out of a magazine archive!
