On June 12, 1939, six weeks after playing in his 2,130th straight and last major league game, Lou Gehrig took the field one last time for the Yankees, visiting Kansas City to take on the Blues in an exhibition. Before an overflow crowd of 23,864 at Ruppert Stadium, Gehrig—who initially declined to play but changed his mind because he felt he owed it to the fans—played three innings, grounded out in his only at-bat and completed four errorless chances at first base. After the game, Gehrig traveled straight to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where doctors told him that he was dying of ALS. This ultra-rare scorecard dates to Gehrig's official final appearance in Kansas City. Although the game was well attended very few examples have come to auction. In fact we know of only one other publicly confirmed sale (Heritage 2019). The program shows general wear but still presents nicely. Very tough to find relic pertaining to the legendary Lou Gehrig!
