    The Pride of the Yankees (RKO, 1942). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    In 1941, baseball legend Lou Gehrig passed away, the victim of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a disease that would come to bear his name. The very next year, RKO released this biopic, based on the life of the game's famed Iron Man. To portray Gehrig, director Sam Wood chose Gary Cooper, a highly bankable star whose recent triumphs included Meet John Doe (1941) and Sergeant York (1941). To add verisimilitude to the picture, Wood also cast several real-life baseball stars, including the ever-popular Babe Ruth. The result was a gripping film that earned an impressive 11 Oscar nominations, including Best Actor (Cooper), Best Actress (Teresa Wright), and Best Picture. Offered here is the highly desirable title card. It has pinholes in the borders, a smudge in the left border, a top right corner bend, and corner bumps, but is otherwise clean and attractive. This is an extremely collectible piece from a truly classic film, one which we're sure you'll want to bid on. Very Fine-.
