Presented here is a captivating, oversized original photograph of Yankees slugger Lou Gehrig following through on his pretty left-handed swing after hitting a long drive high into the daytime sky. Judged by the focused expression on his squinting face, Lou liked what he saw. The ball could very well have been one of his 493 career long balls that left the yard. Vintage action shots of the Iron Horse in full uniform (in this case, his road grays) are in short supply and high demand among esteemed collectors. The perfect clarity of this shot along with the terrific tilted angle above Gehrig's head obtained by the skilled photographer give it an artistic and truly majestic feel.

The 11" by 14.25" photo, most likely taken during the 1934 season, has a vertical crease down the right side, some chipping on the edges, and some damage to the lower right corner, none of which affects Gehrig's full body image. The reverse has some taped brown paper along the vertical crease to reinforce its stability. Overall, it presents in good condition. In terms of quality, it is among the finest Gehrig photos you will find in the hobby, magnified by its large size making it ideal for mounted display. Includes full LOA from PSA/DNA with Type I classification.
