A hardcover book entitled Lou Gehrig Pride of the Yankees by Paul Gallico. This is a 1942 First Edition
The cover boards are orange cloth with title in black on the front and the spine.
For seventeen seasons, Lou Gehrig was the heart and soul of the New York Yankees. The power-hitting first baseman donned the pinstripes for 2,130 consecutive games, a streak that earned him the nickname “the Iron Horse” and went unbroken for more than five decades. World Series champion, All-Star, American League Most Valuable Player, Triple Crown winner—the list of Gehrig’s on-field achievements is spectacular. But he is best remembered for the grace and the strength with which he faced an insurmountable challenge off the field: the disease that ended his career and which now bears his name.
Paul William Gallico (1897 – 1976) was an American novelist, short story, and sports writer. Many of his works were adapted for motion pictures.
