Great photos on the front and back. He died from a paralyzing disease which caused him to retire after the 1939 season. His 2,130 games streak is mentioned too.
The career highlights start by mentioning Wally Pipp and his headache. Gehrig played every day until asking manager Joe McCarthy to take him out in early May of 1939. He stayed with the team all season, but he never played again.
After his retirement he was immediately named to the Hall of Fame in a Special Election. No vote counts are shown on baseball-reference.com. Only one other player has been named to the Hall of Fame via a Special Election - Roberto Clemente.
The card mentions Lou Gehrig day and Babe's 60-homer season when Gehrig took home the MVP Award.
One last Gehrig story. About 30 years ago I had my hands on a Ruth/Gehrig ball and a ball from the entire Yankees team from one of those years. How? A friend's grandmother was a classmate and friend of Gehrig's from Columbia University. It was cool to hold them knowing that they were authentic. Those baseballs weren't going to leave that family, which is awesome. I wonder if they still have them? If they lived in my area I would certainly find out.
