    Found a cache of a different kind............... Lou Gehrig autograph!

    I have been cleaning out my childhood house the last few weeks. So I start going through my fathers old Morgue files which is an artist's refrense file.
    He was an artist and would go to these files for examples of different things. Well I started through the Baseball file and found this!!!!!
    Can't be real I told myself..... Got it authenticated yesterday, real deal, sweeeeeeet. It's a 1928-30 Lou Gehrig photo that is signed in fountain pen. Worth some decent $$$ And I was very close to just throwing these files out

    That'd be that Gary Cooper film shaun,
    The greatest single "guy cry" movie moment in history.
    The Gehrig farewell speech at the home plate.

    Wow! Great find!

    Film about Gehrig. Although he may have been in a film? Ive seen a lot of photos of him done up in Western garb?

    Very nice. Lou Gehrig was a good man.

    The Gary Cooper film is "Pride of the Yankees." Babe Ruth and several other New York Yankee players themselves in that film, too.

    Fun fact: Lou Gehrig was a left-handed batter, and Gary Cooper was a right-handed batter. That could not get Cooper to hit worth a damn lefty, so they printed the names on the uniforms, as well as all of the outfield signs backwards and reversed the print. They also had him run to third base instead of first when he hit the ball. Hence, Cooper looks like he is batting left-handed when actually he was batting right.

    Lou Gehrig picture

    What did you do with the picture?

    One of my son's last games with the Ray's was the one where Derek Jeter broke Lou Gehrig's Yankee record for most hits. My son, Chris Richard, was on 1st base.

    Thanks.
