The presented image of Gehrig is among his most iconic. Captured in 1937, it shows him at his apex, long beyond the shadow of Ruth, on the verge of winning his fifth World Series title, and second consecutive as the Yankee’s unrivaled leader. His expression as he peers over the five bats he holds artfully arrayed before him conveys a sense of serenity, the look of a man who has overcome great challenges, been to the mountain top, yet never got lost in his own glory. And a man unknowing of his greatest challenge yet to come.
