    1936 World Wide Gum Joe DiMaggio #51 SGC 60 EX 5. In 1936, a rookie out of the west coast would not only elevate his team to the pennant but get his first taste of World Series experience. It would be a sign of the greatness to follow. Of the few appearances DiMaggio made in '36, none are as rare and significant as his Canadian World Wide Gum rookie card. This is the only card that made mention of his first nickname--"Deadpan Joe"-anointed him for his emotionless on-field play. For the DiMaggio specialist, this is a monumental addition without compare. The card shows uneven top-bottom centering, very slight wear to the bottom-right corner and a deep, sharp print strike. The back shows some light toning along the left and right edges but is clean otherwise. The back is printed in both English and French confirming its Canadian origins.
