I took this photo today of that same trophy at the hall of fame.

Also is there any way to find the whole version of the speech or is there just the small clips.

Signed photo taken before his 2000th consecutive game. ("Mimmie," who the photo is inscribed to, was Pitzy Katz' daughter. Katz was an entertainer who used to often visit the Gehrigs after Lou's retirement to help cheer him. The Gehrig letters recently posted talk quite a bit about Katz.)



Signed spring-training photo of Lou with a young fan:



GPC sent to a fan:



Lou with a couple of admirers:



Signed 1939 World Series program:



Postcard sent to a fan in 1940 from Gehrig's parole Board office. By then, he could no longer write, and employed a rubber stamp:

1939

Any clue what this photo might be worth (minus the signature)? I am under the impression that it is a period copy of the original image. It's 8X10, on heavy matte stock. No markings on verso.

Default Great shot of the trophy yanks12025.

Terrific stuff everyone. Keep posting everything Gehrig.

These "trophy" photos were taken for a Look magazine article in 1940.

Although I did post this telegram in an earlier thread, I think it warrants a post here as well...
