    1936 Joe DiMaggio Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1--Image Used for 1936 World Wide Gum Rookie Card!
    The Yankees had seen more than its share of greatness in the first three and a half decades of franchise existence, but never had they enjoyed the services of a superstar so proficient with all five tools until the year this photograph was captured and printed. If this wonderful photo of the Yankee Clipper looks familiar, you're likely thinking of the 1936 World Wide Gum rookie card (#51) that utilizes the shot, printed here in 7x4.5" dimensions. This is the definitive DiMaggio rookie image.

    Tack holes at the corners represent the bulk of the condition report, and while a few stray creases are apparent at sharp angles to the light, the photo will present with a NRMT appearance upon careful matting and framing. Editorial markings and a faded "Wide World Photos" stamp appear on verso. An absolute masterpiece of baseball photography. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
