    Description

    1948 Leaf Joe DiMaggio #1 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5 - Pop One, One Higher! Joe DiMaggio set the bar so high he carved out a path of excellence that only the likes of Ted Williams would later follow. His legendary baseball life started in the Pacific Coast League when he became a stand-out for the San Francisco Seals. Amazingly, DiMaggio belted a 61-game hitting streak; surpassing even his ML record of 56 straight games with a hit. That magical season of 1941 saw The Yankee Clipper bat .357 on 193 hits and 125 RBIs. Today, some batters strikeout 13 times in a span of a week or two. In 1941, Joe DiMaggio struck out only 13 times all season! He meant so much more to society than almost every other ball player. He was a national treasure who gave society a consistency at a time of great uncertainty. The elder Yankee Clipper is honored with card #1 in the 1948-49 Leaf baseball series which appeared in the twilight of his career.

    This example rightfully ranks among the finest examples in the hobby. Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. This is the only example in NM-MT+ with a lone other rating higher. Sharp corners and crisp edges defy logic; coloring is richly saturated and vibrant. A remarkable copy from a landmark series and a phenomenal investment quality card!
