Signed Lou Gehrig glove could sell for $200K

GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) — A mitt signed by legendary New York Yankees slugger Lou Gehrig is going up for auction.

Howard Henderson was a boy some 80 years ago when the first baseman befriended him during front-yard games of catch. The glove Gehrig gave his fellow lefty will be auctioned off July 15.

Hunt Auctions says it can't prove Gehrig used the glove in a game, though Henderson said Gehrig told him he had.

The glove is autographed "To Howard. I hope you have much luck with this glove as I did. Lou Gehrig." It is expected to fetch between $200,000 and $300,000.

Gehrig was friends with Henderson's father, songwriter Ray Henderson. Howard Henderson turns 92 on Friday, the 75th anniversary of Lou Gehrig's famous July 4 farewell speech at Yankee Stadium.
