Often regarded as his true rookie card, the source image for Lou Gehrig's 1925 Exhibits rookie card is prominently featured in this classic news service photo from International. A young Gehrig's instantly recognizable swing serves as the central focus while he poses for cameras at the ballpark during 1924. Though this photo does land as a Type 4 according to PSA's type classification scale it's worth noting this example remains vintage, developed in the 1930's. Verso exhibits very minor toning at top edge with paper remnants affixed to all four corners. A handwritten inscription is present in pencil with a date of "3/5/24" included. Measures 6.5" x 8.5". Encapsulated as a Type 4 photo by PSA/DNA.
