The mighty swing of young Gehrig is on full glorious display in this 7" x 9" photo from the Wide World/SPORT archives. Although the image appears to have been produced in a later era, the attached paper caption dates to 6/15/23 and reads, "LOU GEHRIG, COLUMBIA'S FORMER 'BABE RUTH,' IS SHOWN UNDER THE BAPTISM OF AMERICAN LEAGUE FIRE AT YANKEE STADIUM. THE SOURCE OF THE FIRE WAS THE PITCHING ARM OF A ST. LOUIS BROWN TWIRLER." EX/MT condition.
