(LOT 19)
1932 U.S. Caramel #26 Lou Gehrig PSA 4 VG-EX

SWEET LOU!!! What a great looking card! When I see this image of Gehrig, the look on his face, together with his hat hiked up so high, I think that this is how someone must have seen Lou when they gave him the nickname "Buster." Also, we'd like to point out that this is the first color card ever made of the "Iron Horse" with its "Henry Louis Gehrig" caption placing it as one of Gehrig's few cards revealing his full name. It's also by far, his toughest mainstream issue; considered extremely scarce versus the overwhelming number of Gehrig's Goudey peers issued in 1933 and 1934. Undervalued to say the least, we highly anticipate the value of the U.S. Caramel Gehrig to continue rising, and finding any aesthetically pleasing example such as this grand offering is truly an excruciating task. Now is the time to capture this mid-grade beauty in a PSA 4 VG-EX holder, and tuck it away before the value soars to unprecedented heights!

MIN BID $2,500
