    1937 O-Pee-Chee (Series A) Joe DiMaggio #118 PSA NM-MT 8 - None Higher. "Joe DiMaggio was the greatest all-around player I ever saw," contemporary diamond legend Ted Williams once told reporters. DiMaggio had a career which cannot be summed up purely in numbers and awards. He had an impact on society as well as baseball history. Perhaps only the face of Babe Ruth could match Joltin' Joe's for iconography, and certainly not since Ruth's retirement had a player garnered such a level of respect and admiration. In 1936, as a rookie out of the Pacific Coast League, he would reserve a place at the World's Champions table with many invites in his future.

    DiMaggio made few appearances on cards in '36, but none are as rare as his '37 O-Pee-Chee card. For the DiMaggio specialist or the vintage card aficionado, this is a monumental addition without comparison. Graded PSA NM-MT 8, this is one of just four at the NM-MT level with none rated higher. Surfaces and corners are close to perfection. The fragile die-cut lines are completely intact. The reverse resonates the same quality as the front. There is nothing about this card that could disappoint. This entry features one of baseball's premier players is a rare chance to acquire what must be one of the top 500 all-time baseball cards the hobby.
