Although action scenes from this era do not have the image crispness normally associated with Type I photos, this 5-1/2" x 5" example does boast all the other indicators of Type I originality. It features background masking and editorial outlining on the front, with an appropriate date stamping ("AUG 30 1935") and news clipping on the reverse. A box score from the most recent game showed Gehrig went 3-for-3 with a HR and 2 RBIs against the White Sox at Comiskey Park. Routine peripheral newsroom usage wear.
