In that most magical of all Yankee seasons, at an early-summer juncture when Gehrig was still batting over .400, the Iron Horse obligingly posed with "the world's best baby." Or so said the Acme/NEA paper caption: "NOT HIS, BUT HE'S PROUD TO MEET HER ALL THE SAME - At the Yankee Stadium, photo shows Lou Gehrig, the home run star of the Yanks, holding Baby Marcia Pinkenfeld, of this city who is said to be the world's best baby. She's good looking to the eye anyway." The 6-1/2" x 8-1/2" photo is date-stamped "JUL 8 1927" and rates VG to VG/EX.
