(LOT 31)
Lou Gehrig Cut Signature PSA/DNA Certified Autograph Grade 8 NM-MT

It was Lou Gehrig's gentleness and consummate professionalism that makes him one of baseball's greatest heroes ever, justifying why advanced autograph and photo collectors actively seek his signature and prominent photos. Unfortunately, due to his untimely death, there simply aren't enough autographs to accommodate the prolific collector community, let alone a signed original note such as this outstanding Lou Gehrig scripted offering. Signed in black steel-tip fountain pen, this spectacular original "Iron Horse" cut is made out to Christy Jr. Measuring approximately 1-1/2" x 3", you can literally sense Gehrig's good-natured personality as he states "Sincerely wishes for the quickest and healthiest recovery. Cordially, Lou Gehrig". The cut is adhered to a 3" x 5" postcard and encapsulated by PSA/DNA in a NM-MT 8 grade. We believe this item is made out to Christy Walsh's son, who was Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth's agent. Incredible find offered here!!!
