    Description

    1933 Joe DiMaggio Original Signed Photograph Used for 1935 Pebble Beach Clothiers Postcard, PSA/DNA Type 1. . If the image looks familiar to you, there's a good reason for that. This is the exact shot that was used in the Pacific Coast League set of postcards issued by Pebble Beach Clothiers in 1935, the earliest trading card of any style to feature the illustrious Yankee Clipper. However, the discovery of a different example of this image with a paper caption dating to July 12, 1933 carries us back to the very first season of DiMaggio's professional career as an eighteen-year old phenom for his local San Francisco Seals. It was on that day that he tied the PCL hit streak record at forty-nine, en route to an eventual sixty-one.

    This 5.25x8.25" photograph shows a young DiMaggio taking a mighty hack. Whiteout was used on the background to provide better contrast for newspaper clarity. Some surface cracking on the front is visible. The reverse has two newspaper captions ("Sep 30 1936" stamped), a paper caption and name identified in pencil. DiMaggio signed the front in 8/10 blue ink. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA Type 1/Autograph Authentic.
