    1940 Joe DiMaggio Louisville Slugger Advertisement. The "Yankee Clipper" only got thirteen years of baseball in the Major Leagues, losing three prime years to military service in World War II. Still, Joe DiMaggio made all those years count. With thirteen All-Star appearances, three MVP awards and nine World Series championships, he left the game with nothing left to prove.

    The offered piece is a large format rendering of DiMaggio from 1940, advertising Louisville Slugger baseball bats. Measuring about 15.5x21" (18.5x23" framed), the thick cardboard sign is done in a cartoon style and refers to his 1939 batting title and that in 1940 there would be three DiMaggio's in baseball. A very rare piece from early in "Joltin' Joe's" career.
