1941 Joe DiMaggio Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. How great must it have been to be Joe DiMaggio in 1941? Twenty-six, tall, handsome, MVP, World Series champion, and the toast of New York. Joltin' Joe was all of these in 1941. This image encapsulates all that with a moment from that season frozen in time for eternity. We see him kneeling in the on-deck circle with his bats, rubbing the resin bag while carefully studying the pitcher as he patiently waits for his turn at bat. This crisp image was shot closeup and from ground level, and Joe really pops out against the blurred fans in the background. Chicago Tribune image was taken during Joe's fifty-six-game hit streak and bears date stamps for July 14th (Game 54) and July 17th (the day the ended against Cleveland). Measures 7.5x10". The right border has been trimmed but it doesn't affect DiMaggio. Full LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
