Lou Gehrig’s Watch Joins Johnny Manziel Jersey in Sports Auction

The watch, engraved with “Henry L. Gehrig” on its side and “Yankees 1928 World Champions” on its back, was given by Gehrig’s mother, Christina, to family friend Ruth Quick upon Christina Gehrig’s death in 1954. It had remained in the Quick family since, and is still “functioning perfectly,” according to the release, which cites its estimated value at $300,000.
