A very tough item, this 3.5x5.5” postcard is post dated October 2, 1937 and signed on the back in black fountain pen by the New York Yankees’ legendary Iron Horse: “Dear Jule - Many thanks for your kind letters, and may I extend to you my best wishes, Lou Gehrig.” The penmanship is smooth flowing, bold and impeccable, as is his signature, which grades “9” out of a possible 10. Ink looks almost as fresh as the day it was penned back in 1937. Both front and back are in Gehrig's hand. Card itself is EX with some light paper loss on the front (opposite side to the signature) and tiny creases in 2 corners.
