Lou Gehrig Last Game Program

Lou Gehrig Last Game Program

From a story in the Kansas City Star in 1999: “Conventional wisdom and most history books suggest that Gehrig’s career ended May 2, 1939. It was then that Gehrig, mysteriously slumping through a .143 season, pulled himself out of the lineup and ended his remarkable 'Iron Man' streak. "A bit lesser known, though, is the fact that Gehrig participated in an exhibition game pitting the New York Yankees against their top farm club, the old Kansas City Blues, more than a month later... Clearly, it wasn't vintage Gehrig. He played just three innings, took his spot as the No. 8 hitter in the lineup and went to the plate for only one at-bat.” This program is from that very last game, on June 11, 1939. The accordion-fold program has some minor paper loss on one fold but is overall G/VG.
