A hoard of 1928 Yuenglings cards that walked into the National several years ago simultaneously raised the profile of all the 1928 ice cream issues, and underscored the scarcity of the Harrington's and Tharp's cards from that same year.  This example of one of the issue's three key cards features Yankees hero Lou Gehrig and has been graded EX 5 by PSA, with a slight centering issue and some lightly worn corners.  Neither interfere with the outstanding portrait image of Gehrig, still a decade removed from his career-ending illness and just as he began to enter his prime.
