Description

Presented is a complete example of the 1924 Columbian, the official class yearbook for Columbia University. The (520) page book measures 8x11 and remains complete with no missing or clipped pages. Included are three great images of Gehrig in baseball attire on page 275 (team-photo), 278 (in uniform) and 279 (in-action). Additionally, page 277 devotes a paragraph to his ability, accolades and notes his sale to the New York Yankees. While the exterior of this sensitive publication shows some spine wear and damage, the interior looks generally superb with crisp, clean pages throughout. This significant publication will make for a lovely display piece in any vintage baseball or New York Yankees collection.
