Presented here is a stunning, sepia tone 7" by 9" original photograph of Lou Gehrig jumping over a bat held by Joe DiMaggio. The playful shot was taken early in 1937 during Spring Training in St. Petersburg, Florida, after the pair of Yankee teammates had just finalized and signed their new contracts. The crystal clear image of two baseball legends is well known throughout the hobby, retaining fine contrast and clarity with only a few surface wrinkles on the right side. The reverse is stamped by International News and dated Mar 22, 1937 with the original caption attached, albeit faded and facing inward. This amazing photo originated from the personal collection of Joe DiMaggio and includes a letter of provenance from DiMaggio's granddaughters. Encapsulated PSA/DNA TYPE I.
