Circa 1935 Lou Gehrig Signed Photograph

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $2,963

Original snapshot photo of Lou Gehrig, beautifully signed in black fountain pen by the fabled "Iron Horse." Gehrig's signature is exceptionally bold and has been graded MINT 9 by PSA/DNA. The photo captures Gehrig nattily attired as he poses with a young girl in front of an outdoor pavilion. Although the exact year and locale are unknown, the fact that the photo was later signed by Gehrig probably indicates that he knew the family. The photo (2.75 x 3.75 inches), which features scalloped borders, displays both surface paper loss and paper residue on the reverse resulting from its removal from an album page; otherwise in Excellent condition. This is an exceptional Gehrig-signed photo and one that was undoubtedly a keepsake treasured by the original recipient for many years. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $2,963
