Description

    1941 Play Ball Joe DiMaggio #71 PSA NM-MT 8. With its appealing and colorful, "Deco"-style motif, this early card of Joe DiMaggio hails from the last "Play Ball" series featuring color to its portrayals. Joltin' Joe's '41 depiction a perfect combination of facial exertion and natural swing, nicely balanced by the soothing effect of the illustration's background tones. Among a total census of 532 copies encapsulated by PSA, just a half-dozen have been adjudged finer than this extremely satisfying example. Having totally avoided the age-toning to which the Play Ball issues were routinely susceptible, the image of DiMaggio on the obverse is set inside frosty white borders, and the back is similarly fresh in character. Wear at the corners and edges is essentially indiscernible but, if any exists at all, it is expressed in a stray fiber or two, and the piece's overall appearance betrays no meaningful evidence of past circulation.
