Default Value of Type 1 Lou Gehrig 2130 Streak Ends "Dugout Steps" Photo?

Hello -

I currently have a 1939 Lou Gehrig Original Photograph with PSA (expected back in a few weeks) that measures 4.75 x 6.25 from the historic "Dugout Steps" photo of him after he removes himself from the game in Detroit on May 2, 1939 snapping his consecutive game streak.

Stamping on the back shows Chicago's syndicate of the International News took this photo which matches up with the 1939-1940 time frame which should make it a Type 1.

Curious on any thoughts on the value of this photo. As you can see there are some defects but still presents excellent.

Thanks in advance!!!

I have been dealing in photos a lot lately.

I would say the following...

Taking into consideration the following points....... size, clarity, content.

All things considered, I would say this is a $550-$1000 photograph.

The size is smaller than a collector looks for, and the clarity (although it may be your scanner) looks to be missing some. The content is what obviously drives the price up on this photo.

While the market may dictate a higher price based on 2 people having to have it, the value should lie somewhere in that range in my unbiased opinion.

P.S. A slug on the back would definitely add to the photo explaining the historic event.

Is this a Type 1? It looks like a close crop of the actual iconic image. Does that still make it a Type 1 if it's more like a photo of a photo?

I have been collecting Gehrig type 1 photos for the past 7yrs now and the values are all over the place. Depending on where it is listed and who sees it, the values can be ridiculously high or really cheap.

Considering the size, this looks to be a cropped version of the original photo. I think that Stephen's valuation is pretty fair, but you just never know.

Based on the stamp, it's a type 1 but the fact that it's trimmed will hurt the value with photo collectors. Untrimmed it's a $3-$4,000 Photo. Like that I'd agree with the higher end of Stephen's estimate... $700-$1000

Could be a type 3 even with that back stamp.

I'm actually guessing type 3 but I'd send to PSA.

Find a clear scan of it on the internet and compare to the quality of your print.

Too trimmed for me, but the clarity also doesn't appear to be there.

Default Gehrig Photo

Thanks for the comments. It has been with PSA since 11/14 so it should be back here shortly. For what its worth to anyone interested, it will go for sale if it is a Type 1. If it's a Type 3 I will most likely keep it as it won't have as much value to someone besides me.

Guessing Type 3 also. Not a very sharp image.
