    Description

    1940 Play Ball Joe DiMaggio #1 New York Yankees. By the time this card appeared, Joe DiMaggio had already played for four years but reached the World Series in each and was already a 4-time World Series champion. With the retirement of Lou Gehrig, the heart of the Yankees team couldn't have been passed to a better athlete. This #1 card from the star-studded 1940 Play Ball issue remains one of Joe D's most sought-after cards. Off-centered graphics, light creases on the front and a notch on the right edge of the card prevent this card from being above Fair condition. Nonetheless, a fabulous must-have card of "Joltin Joe".
