For the first 12 seasons of his Hall of Fame career, Lou Gehrig, “The Iron Horse” played in the shadow of Babe Ruth. While not seeking the limelight of his popular teammate, Gehrig simply went about his business and produced dominant season after dominant season. His devotion to the game and his willingness to play through pain and injury earned the respect of his teammates, and when Ruth left the Yankees following the 1934 season, it was Gehrig who would become the official leader starting in 1935.

Offered here is an Official American League William Harridge stamped baseball that has been signed by 23 members of the 1935 New York Yankees. The new captain and Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig signed his name in black pen across the sweet spot, along with the clubhouse signature of Joe Sewell. Other signatures include Hall of Famers Red Ruffing, Earle Combs, Tony Lazzeri, Bill Dickey and Lefty Gomez. Other signatures include Vito Tamulis, Myril Hoag, Jack Saltzgaver, Johnny Murphy, John Allen, Walter Brown, George Selkirk, Art Jorgens, Jesse Hill, Johnny Atler, Johnny Murphy, Red Rolfe, Jack Saltzgaver, Jimmie DeShong, Johnny Broaca, Blondy Ryan and two others. The ball displays moderate toning and the signatures are light. This comes with a LOA from Beckett Authentication. Please note that Beckett has deemed the signatures of Ben Chapman and Joe Sewell clubhouse versions.
