BABE RUTH & LOU GEHRIG PHOTOGRAPH
Original photograph of Hall of Famers Babe Ruth (1895-1948) and Lou Gehrig (1903-1941) as members of the New York Yankees, c.1920s. Signed by the photographer in pencil on the lower right border. The photograph belonged to Hall of Fame pitcher Stan Coveleski (1889-1984) who proudly displayed it in his living room. The verso is inscribed by Coveleski in blue ink, Lou Gehrig & Babe Ruth, I never get any credit for making a hitter out of Babe R. He pitched a game against me, he hit the hardest home run I ever had hit off me, 1 wk later they took him away from pitching & put him in the outfield, so I always said to myself I made a hitter out of him.
11 x 12 1/2 in.
