1935 Schutter-Johnson #20 Lou Gehrig. Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by PSA. Of the seventeen examples of this card listed in the PSA Population Report, only two are graded at this level, with just four graded higher. Schutter-Johnson is one of the most unusual and obscure sets from the 1930s. The numbered cards, which are titled "Major League Secrets" on the reverse, feature illustrations of Major League ballplayers on the front, each of whom offers playing tips to kids. As noted on the front, the artwork was done by former Major League player Al Demaree, who also provided illustrations for the 1938 Goudey "Heads Up" set. Gehrig is pictured here in a batting pose and his tip is "Hit Ball Where It Is Pitched." Further instruction from Gehrig appears in print on the reverse. Gehrig is one of the keys to the set and this is an outstanding mid-grade example of this seldom-seen Gehrig card.
