Lou Gehrig Last Game of the Streak Yankees Program 4/30/39

Lou Gehrig Last Game of the Streak Yankees Program 4/30/39

Oh, what a lucky man he was! Game programs from the 1930s are fairly uncommon. And this one is even rarer. It's from the last game the "Iron Horse" ever played, snapping his long-held record of 2,130 consecutive games that was later eclipsed by Cal Ripken, Jr. We are convinced this publication was from April 30 because teammate Joe DiMaggio is correctly out of the Lineup... the only day he was out of the order in the series vs. the Washington Senators. It is unscored and in EX-MT Condition. It's nearly impossible to improve upon this gem. Gehrig - who went 0-4 in his finale - was the most famous person to suffer from and succumb to ALS, the disease that now bears his name. Washington won the game, 3-2 but the Yankees would go on to rack up a major league-best 106 victories en route to a World Series sweep of Cincinnati.
