Description

    1938 Goudey Joe DiMaggio #274 PSA NM-MT 8. You'd have a big head too if you'd bagged Marilyn Monroe! Comical caricature of the Yankee Clipper is no laughing matter at this elite level, however, one of just twenty-five to achieve a NM-MT rating from the experts at PSA, a grade topped only three times in history. Bright colors and sharp registration supplies endless eye appeal to this top-tier representation, with the lightest corner touches and standard age-toning the only hints at an eighty-year anniversary in 2018.

    Joltin' Joe would complete this 1938 season the same way he finished his first two in pinstripes--with World Series glory, posting a .581 regular season slugging average topped only by Foxx, Greenberg and Cleveland Indians slugger Jeff Heath. The following season he'd grab hold of the Yankee reins following the tragic farewell of fellow pinstriped legend Lou Gehrig.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. Only three examples have rated higher. The colors are deep and saturated. Corners show very mild signs of wear at the tips, and surfaces are blemish-free. A key card from the rise of one of the most celebrated figures in the history of our national pastime.
