4/30 Today In History - Lou Gehrig show 'em

1939 At Yankee Stadium, Lou Gehrig's streak and career comes to end as the 'Iron Horse' plays his final game going 0-for-4 against the Senators. The Yankees first baseman played in 2,130 consecutive games and compiled a .340 batting average with 490 home runs during his 17 seasons with the Yankees.

One of the very few athletes who can rightly be considered a hero.

I really need to get scans of my Gehrig collection to post. Always looking for low grade, affordable items to add.

Dang it, David McDonald... you just have to keep showing me that awesome signed Goudey to get me jealous!
