This talking New York Yankees Lou Gehrig bobblehead is very cool


On July 4, 1939 New York Yankees slugger Lou Gehrig retired from Major League Baseball. Gehrig, who was known as the 'Iron Horse of Baseball' had played in 2,130 consecutive games for the Yankees before removing himself from the lineup on May 2, 1939.

Gehrig was playing poorly, due to his neuromuscular condition ALS (which later became known as Lou Gehrig's Disease).

Doctors at the Mayo Clinic revealed the diagnosis in June of 1939 and the Yankees immediately made a push to have him honored by fans.

On the fourth of July that year Gehrig delivered his iconic 'luckiest man' speech.

Now, you can bring that into your New York Yankees fan cave thanks to FOCO. Their new, limited-edition talking Lou Gehrig bobblehead is a must-have for fans.
