Much like his career, Lou Gehrig baseball cards are nothing short of amazing.
Often overshadowed by Babe Ruth, Gehrig put up some truly jaw-dropping statistics himself. Along with a .340 lifetime batting average, he was also able to belt 493 home runs and turned in a staggering 13 consecutive seasons with over 100 RBI.
But, it was his streak of 2,130 consecutive games played that earned him the nickname “Iron Horse” and cemented his legacy as one of the game’s most consistent players.
His boyish smile and enthusiasm with which he played the game made him an easy fan favorite and a joy to watch.
As you can imagine, Lou Gehrig baseball cards are highly sought after by today’s hobbyists and are worth big bucks in high grade. Here’s a look at his best cards that any collector should consider adding to his or her collection.
