Description

This original photo alone—sans signatures—is desirable for its championship credentials, oversized 11x14 dimensions, thick-stock quality paper, crystal-clear focus and appealing "WIDE WORLD STUDIO" credit stamping on the reverse. But then there's McCarthy's expansive fountain-pen inscription, "To Joseph Bikler From Joe McCarthy 1937" ("6" strength). And the icing on the cake is of course the sensationally bold, perfectly placed, flawlessly executed "10" signature of none other than the Iron Horse himself! The '37 season marked Gehrig's last of 8 career 200-hit campaigns and his last of 10 World Series home runs. EX condition. Full photo LOA from JSA.
