1940 Joe DiMaggio Hillerich & Bradsby Advertising Sign. Those who participated in our October 2005 Signature auction will likely remember our presentation of a signed example of this very rare advertising piece, a relic from the famed collection of Barry Halper. And while the fine inscription from DiMaggio was considered a positive addition by many, there are certainly others who prefer their advertising pieces unadulterated, and so we're very happy to offer this scarce counter sign for the purists among our bidding clientele. Don't let the fact that this is the second we've found trick you into believing these signs grow on trees--nothing could be further from the truth. While H&B put out a collection of similar signs in the mid-1940's, this DiMaggio issue is infinitely more scarce, and the visual appeal is undeniable. The condition is terrific for a piece of this vintage, with a small nail hole in the center border and very light toning that does almost nothing to detract from visual appeal. There are no creases, tears or significant stains as is typical of almost all signs predating the United States' involvement in the Second World War. The cultured advertising sign collector will surely not be disappointed. Sign measures 15.5x20.5", and is framed simply and tastefully to slightly larger dimensions.
