    Description

    1954 Marilyn Monroe & Joe DiMaggio Photograph Signed by DiMaggio. The happy days captured here were brief and fleeting, but DiMaggio's love for the tragic blonde bombshell stayed with him until his final moments, which came thirty-seven years after Monroe's own passing. "I'll finally get to see Marilyn," the dying slugger whispered to his lawyer and confidante Morris Engelberg moments before drawing his last breath in 1999. Despite this lifelong devotion, or, more accurately, because of it, DiMaggio refused to sign anything related to Marilyn, so the appearance of his 10/10 blue sharpie autograph here is particularly rare. The photograph is a modern print of the original 1954 shot, matted and framed to a tasteful 14x17". Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
