    1998 Joe DiMaggio Single Signed Vintage Baseball. This unique piece is a must have for any collector of DiMaggio, the Yankees, or single signed baseballs. OAL (Harridge) sphere has vintage "1936" inscription right next to the league stamp. The ball was presented to DiMaggio on August 7th, 1998 at one of his last autograph appearances along with a Cross fountain pen. Joltin' Joe proceeded to place his beautiful signature perfectly across the sweet spot in razor sharp black ink. The ball exhibits some understandable toning but is still extremely lovely. Joe's signature , meanwhile, is NRMT.

    This lot includes the Cross pen (in box) used to sign the ball and the parking ticket from the signing at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare date stamped "Aug. 7, 1998." Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
