Comments on this Card

'Despite all the competing shadows, the color draws attention to the top third, where the face is.' -Charles

About the Player

A short bio from the Boston Garter Game of the Century card back: With Ruth slowing down, Gehrig is the marquee name in NY now. Last year he led the Yankees in home runs with 42 and runs batted in with 151. Laruppin’ Lou is a fan favorite around the league, and he almost doubled the votes received by Jimmie Foxx for the first base position. Not long after the Game of the Century is played, around mid-August, the brawny Gehrig will break the record for consecutive games played, now held by former Bos/NY ss Everett Scott. Blasted 4 homers in one game last summer. Lou also has a girl now, E. Twitchell of Chicago. They say it’s serious.

About the Series

Helmar's Boston Garter tradition of strikingly original artwork takes a giant leap forward in this celebration of the first All-Star game, known at the time as the 'Game of the Century'. Thirty-six players and both managers appear in the joyful Art Deco style that defined the period. For the first time we are hand numbering each card. Just twenty sets are printed and numbered plus four sets of artist's proofs. Each card is 3' x 5'.
