    1938 Goudey Joe DiMaggio #250 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5 - Pop One, One Higher! Joe DiMaggio set the bar so high he carved out a path of excellence that Ted Williams would later follow. His legendary baseball life started on the West coast in the Pacific Coast League when he became a stand-out for the San Francisco Seals. Amazingly, DiMaggio belted a 61-game hitting streak; surpassing even his ML record of 56 straight games with a hit. That magical season of 1941 saw The Yankee Clipper bat .357 on 193 hits and 125 RBIs. Today, some batters strikeout 13 times in a span of a week or two. In 1941, Joe DiMaggio struck out only 13 times all season! He meant so much more to society than just a ball player. He was a national treasure who gave society a consistency at a time of great uncertainty in the world. Continuing his charmed life after baseball, one of the most popular sports figures married one of Hollywood's most famous figures - Marilyn Monroe! Though the marriage of Joe and Marilyn was troubled and very short, it remains to this day the ultimate celebrity pairing, the consummate sports legend and the definitive Hollywood star. It is well known that despite a lifelong affection for Miss Monroe that saw DiMaggio send flowers to Marilyn's grave until his own passing.

    The comical image of the young Yankee Clipper ranks among the finest examples in the hobby. Graded SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5, this card is the only NM/MT+ example with one grading according to the SGC census. Sharp corners and crisp edges defy logic; coloring is bright and vibrant. A remarkable copy. With '38 Goudey being among the more scarce Goudey products, this is a phenomenal investment quality card!
