Default Lou Gehrig Card Help

I was wondering if anyone could identify this for me. It's made out of a thick cardboard type material. It's obviously old.. not in the best shape. Any info. would be helpful.

I did find a 1928 Lou Gehrig Exhibit Card that may be the card...

Thanks

It looks to be a 1928 Exhibit.

Default 1928 Exhibits should have a blue hue

1928 Exhibits should have a blue hue.

Your item shows no blue hue.

I think you have an artificially aged fake. Look at the print quality and the stock seems wrong too where the tears show it.

If its a fake its very old. I found this in a barn, in a steamer trunk that was buried under 50 years of dirt...

I don't think it's an aged fake. I believe it's the real thing: 1928 Exhibits. It's just in very, very poor condition. Not sure if soaking it may help it look better by getting rid of the dirt or damage the card further. If you want to get it slabbed, Beckett or SGC may do it for you with Beckett being the better bet. Here's a heavily damaged W590 Ruth that was moldy that I still managed to get holdered by SGC years ago.

Even raw, you can probably get $200+ on that card these days given the skyrocketing values.

What's the going rate on getting a card slabbed nowadays?

Default $150.....

With SGC due to it being larger than a standard card it will be $100 for 45-50 day service.

About $50 for getting it there and back. So..... about $150. No guarantee it will be slabbed but you will be out $150 either way. This would never grade higher than A or Authentic and like I said, you are paying for their opinion so you might be out $150 and get your card back unslabbed. Things you should know FYI.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's real. Here's mine for a comparison ...

Because of the provenance I am going 60/40 that it's real.
