Lou Gehrig's "Luckiest Man"

A closer look reveals this illustration is handwritten with Gehrig's famous "Luckiest Man" speech, where he announced his retirement from baseball due to ALS, later named Lou Gehrig's disease. A portion of proceeds from all Lou Gehrig sales benefits the Lou Gehrig Society and Project Main Street.

 **Fun Fact** The original Lou Gehrig word art was purchased by Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum in NYC's Times Square!
