Description

    1935 E137 Zeenut Joe DiMaggio with Coupon (Throwing) PSA EX 5. NOTE: The spots to the right of "Seals" on his jersey and the black box are on the holder, the card is not affected.

    Years before he was known as "Joltin' Joe," married to Marilyn Monroe, or hit in 56 straight games, DiMaggio terrorized the PCL with his fielding and batting prowess for the San Francisco Seals. It surprised no one that a major league club would recognize his immense talents. The New York Yankees took note immediately. As a member of the San Francisco Seals, DiMaggio surpassed his Major League streak with a 61-game hitting streak in 1933.

    Appearing years before his official rookie card, the Collins-McCarthy company included the star Seal in their annual Zeenut card promotion. Such was his status that Joe was honored with two different cards, one of him batting and this full-figure "throwing" pose. The cards came with a coupon along the bottom of every card and Zeenut enthusiasts know that is a practically unique bonus to have this still intact. Top Zeenut specialists estimate less than 5% of known card still have this coupon intact. In any condition, this is an extremely scarce and historically important card which chronicles one of baseballs' best from the earliest years of his professional career.

    Graded PSA EX 5 this is one of just five (counting qualified grades) confirmed cards with the Zeenut coupon. This being the second finest on record. DiMaggio's pre-rookie debut is a difficult to find card in any condition and it is exceedingly rare to find one with the coupon still intact.
