With Babe Ruth retired and Lou Gehrig's career coming to an abrupt conclusion, baseball fans outside of "The Big Apple" were hoping that the New York Yankees would finally relinquish the stranglehold they had on the American League for over a generation. Ummm .... no. A new baseball icon was rising to greatness and this time it was an Italian kid from California who so perfectly represented the Bronx; "Joltin'" Joe DiMaggio. Already an AL HR champion with 107 round-trippers, 432 RBI, and a .331 batting average at 23-years old when this 1939 Play Ball card was released, DiMaggio was already putting up numbers like Ruth and Gehrig, and he would only get better with two batting titles and three MVP awards on the horizon. Sharp NM/MT to NM/MT+ corners join equally impressive edges around a boldly contrasted image that is centered to virtual perfection. A long-time favorite with traditionalists who favor its simple design, the offered DiMaggio presents one of our hobby's most celebrated images of "The Yankee Clipper," the only player in the history of the game to be selected to the mid-summer classic in each and every year of his career.
1939 Play Ball #26 Joe DiMaggio PSA 8 NM/MT
