(LOT 26)
1933 DeLong #7 Lou Gehrig PSA 4 VG-EX

IRON HORSE!!! Offered here is a 1933 Lou Gehrig from the seldom-surfacing Delong series. Graded a solid PSA VG-EX 4, this one is easy on the eyes. Slightly OC with strong corners and a nicely posed Lou Gehrig completing his mighty swing. Considering "The Babe" was excluded from the eclectic DeLong set, this is one instance where the "Iron Horse" steals the show, for we are all too familiar with Gehrig having to have played in Ruth's shadow for a majority of his seemingly unappreciated career. Similar to the PSA 4 U.S. Caramel Gehrig likewise offered in this auction, Lou's DeLong subject is extremely scarce versus its Goudey peers and seldom surfaces for the taking. A scarce opportunity to purchase one of the "Iron Horse's" highly coveted color issues, we highly advise you to place the final bid on this imposing Gehrig keepsake that typically eludes even the advanced collector!

MIN BID $2,500
