This sports wall art piece features Lou Gehrig during his Luckiest Man Farewell Speech which he delivered at Yankee Stadium on July 4, 1939.
Lou Gehrig was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in 1939 – a disorder now commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig Disease. The disease forced him to retire at age 36 and claimed his life two years later.
Gehrig was voted the greatest first baseman of all-time by The Baseball Writers’ Association in 1969 and was the leading vote-getter on the All-Century Team chosen by fans in 1999.
All works are hand-crafted using only American products and are done in a “Modern-Vintage” style.
