    Description

    1969 Joe DiMaggio Original Folk Art Single Signed Baseball by George Sosnak Honoring DiMaggio's 56-Game Hitting Streak. George Sosnak, an umpire of the highest order, was also quite the impressionist. The arbiter turned folk artist created a masterpiece when he took this baseball in his capable hands and painted the story of Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak. One of Sosnak's images captures DiMaggio with a bat in hand. A list of the unfortunate pitchers who yielded hits to Joltin' Joe runs from one side panel through the sweet spot to another side panel. The final panel gives a little insight on the streak and when it was stopped. It is topped off with a Yankees logo. DiMaggio signed the ball but his autograph has faded. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
