A short bio from the Boston Garter Game of the Century card back: With Ruth slowing down, Gehrig is the marquee name in NY now. Last year he led the Yankees in home runs with 42 and runs batted in with 151. Laruppin’ Lou is a fan favorite around the league, and he almost doubled the votes received by Jimmie Foxx for the first base position. Not long after the Game of the Century is played, around mid-August, the brawny Gehrig will break the record for consecutive games played, now held by former Bos/NY ss Everett Scott. Blasted 4 homers in one game last summer. Lou also has a girl now, E. Twitchell of Chicago. They say it’s serious.
