Fellow Hall of Famers Lou Gehrig of the Yankees and Carl Hubbell of the Giants pose for cameras in this attractive 7" x 9" news service photo from the Christy Walsh Syndicate. This image hails from a series of shots taken of the rivals during or immediately subsequent to the 1937 World Series where the Giants and Yankees faced off in the Fall Classic for the second consecutive season. Pinholes are present to all four corners and verso exhibits heavy toning throughout with a full paper caption still affixed. Christy Walsh Syndicate credit stamping appears in lavender towards the left edge. A fantastic look at two icons of pre-war New York sports. Encapsulated and authenticated as a Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA.
