Its’ being called ”the most significant baseball ticket in the world.”
The stub was signed by Lou Gehrig July 4, 1939.
Many older Zoomer sports fans know that’s the day the Yankees great retired.
More than 60,000 tickets to the game were sold.
Only two are known to have survived.
Of the two, only the mezzanine box ticket was signed by Gehrig.
The owner’s an unidentified collector.
It’s believed the ticket could go for more than $100,000 at the August 1 sale in Cleveland.
Gehrig retired after being diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral scleroris, now simply known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
He died less than two years later at age 37.
