1938 Large photograph of Lou Gehrig during his final World Series as a New York Yankee in full uniform and arguing with the umpire as members of the Chicago Cubs look on and teammates try to restrain him. Gehrig is hot and showing his competitive side that is not often seen making this a rare photograph. A touching image when you think about the fact that Gehrig was already dying when the photographer snapped this photo, he just didn't know it yet! Issued by a photographer from the Chicago Tribune, making it possibly unique, and in nice shape overall.
