À propos de l'objet

It's been called one of the most egregious MVP snubs in American sports history. While Mickey Cochrane was brilliant both behind and beside the plate during the 1934 season, and his Tigers did, in fact, earn the American League flag in large degree to those contributions, Lou Gehrig's 1934 campaign quite clearly stands as one of the most spectacular in the history of our national pastime. Batting .363 with forty-nine home runs and 166 runs batted in, the Iron Horse galloped to the American League Triple Crown. But the Baseball Writers' Association of America, considered at the time "the official" issuing body of the MVP Award, quite simply "dropped the ball," denying Gehrig his rightful due.Thankfully, , which had begun its own tradition of issuing Most Valuable Player Awards in 1929, stepped in to right this wrong at the 1935 All-Star Game in Cleveland. There editor Ed Bang presented the humble Yankees captain with this award for his masterful 1934 campaign. This 6x8" photograph shows The Iron Horse receiving his trophy from Bang. The reverse has a paper caption affixed, "Acme Newspictures" and "United Press International Newspictures" rubber stamps. A PSA/DNA sticker is also on back. Light wear. HID07601242017
