    1972 Joe DiMaggio Old Timers Day Game Issued & Signed Bat. Personal lumber from Joltin' Joe's Hall of Fame playing career will set you back to the tune of five figures, so this delivery from the good folks at Hillerich & Bradsby is an attractive option for the more budget-conscious collector. It was issued just over two decades after DiMaggio's retirement for use in the 26th Annual Old Timers Day at Yankee Stadium, though it appears that the legendary slugger sat out the contest, leaving the signature model D29L in nearly pristine condition. Soon after the Bronx reunion, a small area of the barrel was sanded of its gloss to allow for a blue ink inscription (7/10), which reads, "To my dear friends Eleanor & Bill, Best Always, Joe DiMaggio." Dimensions: thirty-six inches (36"), thirty-six ounces (36 oz.). Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
