Lou Gehrig Cut Signature Display with Original Leon Wolf Artwork

Starting Bid - $400.00 , Sold For - $1,997.50

This impressive framed wall display is comprised of a magnificent Lou Gehrig cut signature example mounted together with an original Leon Wolf painting of Gehrig. Gehrig's signature is scripted in pencil upon a small portion of lined notebook paper (3 x 1.25 inches) and grades "9/10." Sitting above the signature is a majestic acrylic on canvas original artwork of Lou Gehrig (16 x 20 inches) by noted sports artist Leon Wolf (signed by Wolf in the lower left). Completing the attractive display are color reproductions, respectively, of Gehrig's 1933 and 1934 Goudey baseball cards mounted on either side of the cut signature. Gehrig signature examples have always commanded a premium in the hobby due to his legendary stature and the fact that he passed away prematurely in 1941 at the age of thirty-nine. The offered signature is an outstanding example and its manner of presentation makes it perfect for display in either home or office. Total dimensions: 17.25 x 28.75 inches. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,997.50
