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.
You're about to lay heretofore rheumy eyes upon the first baseman's mitt of the great and timeless Lou Gehrig. Before we begin, a couple of preemptive observations: This mitt is autographed and presently expensive; this mitt could stop an imaginary truck called the Dodge Wildebeest.

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
