(LOT 620)
1941 Play Ball #71 Joe DiMaggio PSA 5 EX

<B>CLASSIC YANKEE CLIPPER!!!... "Joltin' Joe DiMaggio, we want you on our side!" These immortal song lyrics were written by Alan Courtney & Ben Homer and brought to life by the renowned Les Brown Orchestra, written and performed during the legendary 1941 season when Joe D. turned the baseball world upside down via his record-setting 56-game hitting streak. A superhero with icon status, Joe DiMaggio's aforementioned 56-game hitting streak in 1941 continues to be one of our National Pastime's most unbreakable records. Coincidently, the stellar PSA 5 EX Joe DiMaggio 1941 Play Ball card presented here was also issued during that momentous 1941 campaign.

The classic DiMaggio batting image reveals pack-fresh quality, and set against a deep violet and two-tone green hued background as Joltin' Joe completes his mighty swing via an image made famous by the illustrious photographer George Burke. No glaring surface blemishes are evident on either side, with the assessment due to lower corner wear consistent with the grade. This outstanding offering resides as one of the most coveted Joe DiMaggio issues on the planet due to the issue date being his hallowed 1941 record-breaking campaign, as well as the iconic batting pose that arguably resides as the Yankee Clipper's most exalted image. Indeed, now is the time to step up to the plate and capture one of Joltin' Joe's most revered cardboard keepsakes revealing fine mid-grade aesthetics!
