Original news photo capturing Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig during the 1932 World Series. Certified as an original Type I photograph by PSA/DNA. The photo captures Gehrig crossing the plate after hitting a home run in the fourth inning of Game 1 of the 1932 World Series at Yankee Stadium against the Chicago Cubs. Babe Ruth, who was on base when Gehrig homered, is seen just in front of Gehrig, while on deck batter Tony Lazzeri offers his hand out to Gehrig for a celebratory shake. The original Associated Press paper news caption, dated 9/28/32, remains affixed to the reverse. The photo (9 x 7 inches) displays a few light surface wrinkles and a circular editorial marking on the front. In Very Good condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
