Yup not sure how it would not be his exhibit. Happy with mine but would like to purchase/trade for an SGC downgrade or upgrade anyone?

Default Great card

I'll throw my vote in for this being Gehrig's Rookie. I am looking for this card as well. It's not on the top of my list right now, so I will keep my eyes open for you.

I think the premium that the 1925 Exhibits gets shows that most collectors consider this Gehrig's rookie card. The 1932 US Caramel card is expensive also, but not out of line when you consider the Ruth card from the same set. One thing to note for the 1925 Exhibits card is that the card should have a definitive gray shade. On some cards, the TPG's have mislabeled the bluish 1926 Exhibits incorrectly as a 1925 Exhibits. Also, note the 1927 Exhibits Gehrig which has the same image, but has the greenish tint, and different fonts for the caption.

What evidence do we have to support that the w590 Gehrig was produced after 1925 and not with the initial run? I always considered his w590 and the 25 Exhibit to be his rookies. The w590 has always been clearly the more affordable of the two but shows a terrific likeness of Gehrig which I don't believe was used on any other card.

Default Gehrig rookie

I'm partial to this 1923 Type I Photo which ended up being the image used on his 1925 Exhibit:

I do not have any hard evidence indicating that the W590 Gehrig card was not issued in 1925. Since 1925 was his first full MLB season (1923 & 1924 contained only a scant few at-bats), it is much more likely that his card was issued after that season. Of course, it could have been issued later in the season or right after the season ended and still be a 1925 issue.

The best way to tell would be if someone has seen a complete strip including the Gehrig card and then look at the possible dates of all of the other players based on their team designations, etc. I have seen a number of strips from this issue but have never seen one with the Gehrig card included. Does anyone have one that they care to post?

But that has to be the most awkward pose captured in baseball card photography....sounds like the idea for a new thread....

What do you think is a fair offer if you were thinking of buying?
