Even if unsigned, this original Type I photo would be valuable on its own merit for three reasons: 1) It's Babe and Lou in their Yankee prime; 2) It's their classic white-shirt look from spring training in St. Pete; 3) It features the reverse stamp of official team photographer Thorne Studios. That said, the 5x7 sepia shot is indeed autographed by the mighty Iron Horse himself, who writes, "To my good friend / Jimmy McDonell / Sincerely / Lou Gehrig." Gehrig's fountain-pen script averages about "7" overall. (The Ruth autograph has been deemed vintage secretarial.) One tape-reinforced edge tear, otherwise VG/VG-EX. Outstanding image clarity. Full LOAs from JSA and PSA/DNA.
