Description



Those who want the finest heed the call of this spectacular photograph. Taken by master photographer Bill Greene in the late 1930s, this dazzling photo captured Lou Gehrig sometime near the end of his playing days. Developed as a contact proof photo, this crystal clear shot of the "Iron Horse" is the result of a painstaking process than yields amazing image definition. Measuring 4x5, this high quality original boasts excellent gloss, even white borders and a clean surface. A few very minor condition notes are detectable upon close examination, with a corner crease at top left, a hairline wrinkle in the field at lower right and under magnification when held at just the right angle, surface impressions are visible as result of the name "Lou Gehrig" being written on the reverse. These very minor conditions are unobtrusive and do not affect the image of Gehrig. Though this sparkling eighty year-old photo technically rates as (EX-MT+) it presents like-new.
