Most indications suggest it is genuine, but there are a few details (curt finishing on the end letters, curt B) which I have not seen before.  Could it be secretarial?See More

Bernie replied to Bernie's discussion Thoughts on this AP- Gehrig

"As of yet, each and every time I look at that page, I can't see past the Gehrig, my eyes are hypnotically drawn to it. I'll give it another try. Maybe this time I'll try not to focus on the lower quadrant of the page. 8)"
