Agreed Scott.. I feel the same about you too. It was a rocky road but all good now. Why do I want ice cream all of a sudden?

Seriously though.. that picture of Jimmy with those photos. Every photo is a monster in its own way. Such an impressive display. And a GREAT story of building a world class collection with honesty, hard work, limited means and passion. I am glad to call the guy my friend.

I spoken to Jimmy in a while, but he is THE man!
It's really his fault for getting me into vintage photography as well. Up until interacting with him here, my collection of Gehrig items was more scattered. Seeing his photos and learning about them really helped, though I'm not sure that is really the right word, me focus much more on these beauty's. I love cards, but there is something about the photos that add something extra to the feeling I get when adding something new.
I think he stopped posting here for a few reasons, but perhaps the most likely is that his focus shifted to Beatles items.
In honor of the many great posts and friendship Jimmy provided, I am posting 2 things.

First is the painting I commissioned Graig Kreindler to make from Jimmy's 1925 Conlon image.
Here is the original picture

Kreindler


Second is very likely my most favorite picture of all. He traded this to me with a very heavy heart. Gehrig with Christy Walsh's son. Obtained originally from the Walsh family.


Come to think about it. If Jimmy picked up a new Gehrig, he should be posting it here to show it off.

I talk to him about once a month and his health is not very good. He suffers from various issues (COPD, back issues etc...) but is quick and a joy to talk to. He is and has been one of my favorite people in the hobby. His collection of Beatles memorabilia is one of the best in the world especially his photos of them. He has forgotten more about the Beatles than I know. He still is posting photos for sale on eBay via Memory Lane. I would love for him to come back on here and post as well.

I'll gladly throw my hat in that ring...
Jimmy, time to make a holiday appearance.
The ghost of Christmas past, so to speak.

Happy holidays!
