            Hi Bill -

            Check out my Fantastic Baseball Photos thread and you'll see many more colorized pics. I believe them all to be from SPORT magazine.

              So you weren't the one to colorize this one? Did someone colorize it or was this one a rare, original color photo?

                  Bill, I'm pretty sure that the Gehrig picture is an original color photo and it has the same origin (possibly Sport mag.) as the Mel Ott pic I posted a while back: Mel Ott In Color

                    Wow! So rare to see a true color original from 1939! I love to see them because it is a rare chance to see the actual colors of the uniforms. No guessing involved, for a change! Nice work, Babefan in finding it! Kudos!
                    From this photo, it appears the original, early Yankee blue was a much darker Navy. I think that somewhere along the line, the Yankees decided to lighten up their Yankee blue and today, it's a bold, emphatic blue as opposed to the original almost black/blue.

                          Hi Bill and sorry for the delay in responding. The Gehrig color photo is from the Sunday News from the 1930's & 40's. as are many of the others I posted on my thread. Some are also from SPORT magazine. I agree with you that it is amazing to see the true colors of the times.

                            Lou gets picked off, 1936 All-Star Game at Boston. Dizzy Dean picks off Lou. Rip Collins is the first baseman, and Bill Summers is the first base umpire.

                                I don't know the when or where about this one. I'm guessing it's during spring training.
