Scarce 1936 Lou Gehrig Autographed Sheet Music: New York American Photographic Provenance

Original 1936 "We Wrote Our Love Song Together" sheet music as written by Mrs. Lou Gehrig (Eleanor) having been signed at the bottom margin with lengthy inscription, "To Cipe-Maybe if you play this for Mick-It will keep him relaxed and away from business, Cordially Lou Gehrig." Salutation and signature present in outstanding original condition rating 10 out of 10. The piece is accompanied by an original section from the New York American newspaper dated Nov. 2, 1936. The paper pictures Gehrig and his attorney Milton Eisenberg (Mick) laughing while holding the same and likely exact sheet music. Sheet music itself has some moderate handling wear including few small edge tears at lower margin. Very fine Gehrig autographed piece with exceedingly rare photographic provenance. Includes full LOA from JSA: Sheet Music: EX, Signature: MT
