Description



Dating back to 1936, the offered original black and white 7x9 photograph was taken during a game between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. The in-action shot depicts Frank Crosetti passing the ever-popular Moe Berg, as the Iron Horse, Lou Gehrig, focuses in on the plate. The photograph, from Gehrig’s MVP campaign, has several pinholes as well as significant wear on the upper left corner, though the remaining edges look considerably better. Reference markings on the reverse and varying degrees of crazing, which are common for photographs from this era, are spotted, though they do little detract from the overall appeal of the image. Featuring the rarely seen and extremely popular duo of Berg and Gehrig, this period relic is a must-have for any vintage photograph collector.
