Lot 1272: 1937 Lou Gehrig and George M. Cohan Photo
Yankee Doodle Dandy met the Pride of the Yankees when songwriter George M. Cohan presented Lou Gehrig with a wristwatch on the occasion of the Iron Horse's 1,900th consecutive game on August 3, 1937. Fantastic expressions on both faces, but the sad irony was that Gehrig would announce his fatal illness two years later -- on the Fourth of July. 7 x 9" with slight yellowing but good, strong images. EX.
