1938 Photograph of Lou Gehrig during his final September as a New York Yankee in full uniform and arguing with the umpire over a ground rule. 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 Wide World Photos and with a stamp and paper caption on the back, this is a fine condition image with nice clarity and contrast.
