Featured is a stunning Type I photograph of the Iron Horse, Lou Gehrig. The image was shot 9/26/38 and discussed Gehrig expected to see action in the upcoming World Series. Although his performance in the second half of the 1938 season was slightly better than in the first half, Gehrig reported physical changes at the midway point. At the end of that season, he said, "I was tired mid-season. I don't know why, but I just couldn't get going again." Although his final 1938 statistics were above average (.295 batting average, 114 RBIs, 170 hits, .523 slugging percentage, 689 plate appearances with only 75 strikeouts, and 29 home runs), they were significantly down from his 1937 season, in which he batted .351 and slugged .643. In the 1938 World Series, he had four hits in 14 at-bats, all singles. The featured 6" x 8" collectible has been deemed Type I and is offered with a letter from PSA/DNA and Henry Yee.
