    Description

    Circa 1995 Joe DiMaggio "56 Gms" Single Signed Baseball. His center field heir Mickey Mantle is well known in the collecting hobby for his notation variations on single signed spheres, but DiMaggio played it much closer to the vest in his autograph sessions, only occasionally diverging from a simple, unadorned signature. We've definitely never seen this format before, featuring the addition of an immensely desirable "56 Gms" notation recalling DiMaggio's record 1941 hit streak. His blue ballpoint ink is 9+/10, and the OAL (Budig) ball is clean and white. There's every reason to believe this is a "now or never" bidding opportunity. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
