    Description

    1940 Play Ball Joe DiMaggio #1 SGC 50 VG/EX 4. By the time this card appeared, Joe DiMaggio had only played for four years but reached the World Series in each. 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 and some right edge roughness exists. This well preserved example has been graded SGC 50 VG/EX 4. The SMR value is $635.00
