Photo of the day: Lou Gehrig's rather large $250,000 mitt
Here's what a first baseman's mitt looked like back in the days of Lou Gehrig.

This Lou Gehrig autographed 1B glove from 1935 is worth about $250,000. I'm probably standing too close http://t.co/BcJIxx9MWR— Phil Mackey (@PhilMackey) July 11, 2014
