Spectacular, full-bordered 8 1/8" x 10" portrait photo of Lou Gehrig, taken by noted baseball photographer George Burke.  One of Burke's most famous photos, dating to the late 1930s, is simply a wonderful image of the Iron Horse, a sharply-focused close up with the background bathed in blur and shadow, forcing the eye to focus on Gehrig's face.  Printed on heavier paper with rounded corners, the photo does exhibit some creasing at the upper right, as well as some surface wear most noticeable at the lower portion of the photo, near Gehrig's arm.  Burke's stamp appears on the reverse, as do some light typewritten notations at the top edge of the photo.  Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
