Lou Gehrig Retired Number Monument Park Brick Slice 14x18 Framed Collage With Nameplate
In June, 1925, Lou Gehrig replaced Yankees first baseman Wally Pipp in the line up. It's a position he held for 2130 consecutive games. A model of consistency, The Iron Horse was named to seven All-Star teams and awarded the American League MVP award twice (1927 and 1936). Gehrig's freakish skills allowed him to hit for both power and average, winning the Triple Crown in 1934 with a .363 average 49 HR and 165 RBI. A six-time World Series Champion, Gehrig was inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame in 1939. His number 4 is famously retired by the Yankees and he sits in second place behind Derek Jeter on the team's All-Time Career Hits list with 2721.
This is fantastic opportunity to take home a piece of history with this collage which features a graphical reproduction of the retired 4 number in Monument Park, a slice of game used brick from Monument Park, and a nameplate. This is a truly unique piece from the most historic venue in all of sports. A Steiner Sports certificate of authenticity and an MLB hologram of authenticity are included with this piece.
