1934 Tour of Japan Christmas Card from Lou Gehrig (ex-Gehrig Estate)
The Iron Horse made two excursions to the Land of the Rising Sun to spread the gospel of baseball--in 1931 and 1934--and this Christmas card was among the legendary slugger's purchases while engaged in those historic barnstorming tours. It survived via a close friend of Gehrig's mother, Christina upon her passing. Small woodcut print adorns the exterior and interior, with printed text inside each reading, "Seasons Greetings from Japan, Lou Gehrig". Comes with original envelope. No handwriting appears on the card but it survives in marvelous condition.
