1939 Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig “Lou Gehrig Day” TYPE II Original Press Photo PSA/DNA LOA

Offered is one of the more famous shots of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig together on a very somber day. This 10” x 8” photo shows Babe Ruth hugging Lou Gehrig during the Lou Gehrig Day ceremonies at Yankee Stadium on July 4, 1939.   This photo derives from the collection of superstar pitcher and umpire, Lon Warneke’s collection and the writing on the front and back of the photo is in the hand of his wife or daughter.  Lon passed away in 1976, so any photos in his collection were printed before his death.

Super rare photo at a price that won’t break the bank!

This photo has been deemed a TYPE II photograph by PSA/DNA and according to the LOA, this was printed in the 1950's off the orginal negative.  You can own the quality of an original 1939 photograph for fraction of the price and it's still a vintage piece!
