Description

    Circa 1954 Joe DiMaggio & Marilyn Monroe Signed Photograph. Wonderful photograph of the most famous celebrity couple in American history is nearly identical to another we sold for nearly $90,000 back in October 2006. Again, Mr. and Mrs. DiMaggio share a table with Joe's old Yankees buddy Lefty O'Doul, and all three sign the 8x10" image. Admittedly, the signatures here aren't quite as perfect as the earlier offering's, but each is still quite readily legible at approximately 3/10 strength. The photo itself exhibits a bit of corner creasing that is only apparent at sharp angles to the light.

    DiMaggio famously refused to sign anything related to Monroe after her tragic, early death, so nearly every such item derives from their very brief marriage. Certainly this duo ranks among the most coveted for post-war autograph collectors. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
