To say this team was a collection of stars would be an understatement. That year was Lou Gehrig’s final season in the majors. This is a baseball signed by the members of that ’38 team, which Gehrig signed on the sweet spot and inscribed as a gift to a friend. Manager Joe McCarthy actually signed this ball – as a “clubhouse signature” was standard practice for the legendary skipper, as did notable greats like DiMaggio, Ruffing, Gomez and Gordon, as well as many others.
