Highly regarded sports photographer George Burke captured New York Yankees captain Lou Gehrig in his prime in this striking 1930s Type I photograph. Measuring 4x6 this vintage original photo features a smiling Gehrig attired in his Yankees uniform in a well composed image. Moderate peripheral wear and a blemish in the upper left field region relegate this important photo to a technical grade of (VG-EX), however a sharp image, abundant gloss and crisp paper add up to a highly desirable example. Reverse side provenance takes the form of several stampings with: the catalog number “268-A5” at upper left; subject name “Lou Gehrig” at top center; and photographer’s credit “Geo. Burke 847 Belmont Ave. Chicago” at lower right. This item is accompanied by a full photo LOA from PSA/DNA attesting to its Type I status.
