This striking portrait has a heckuva lot going for it: You've got Gehrig, you've got 1927, you've got U & U's desirable orange-style caption, and you've got phenomenal focus down to the pores, pocks, follicles and stubble on Lou's young, chiseled face. Condition of the 6-1/2" x 8-1/2" photo is EX and the caption reads, "LOU GEHRIG, YANKEE FIRST BASEMAN, TIES BABE RUTH BY HITTING 24TH HOME RUN - Lou Gehrig, first baseman of the New York Yankees and leading batsman of the American League, ties Babe Ruth for season's home run record by scoring his 24th circuit drive. Close-up of Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth's rival." LOA for Type I by PSA/DNA.
