With its exceptional image clarity, wonderful composition, and perfect contrast between the well-focused foreground and softly blurred background, this is simply a textbook example out of the photography handbook. Whoever was behind the camera for Acme Newspictures that day did everything right and created a masterpiece. Gehrig's Baseball Centennial sleeve patch pinpoints the 7" x 9" photo to the immortal year of 1939 when the Iron Horse ended his consecutive-games streak and delivered his Luckiest Man speech. EX condition with a few pinholes in the white margins. LOA for Type I by PSA/DNA.
