The brilliant career of “Joltin’ Joe” DiMaggio is summed by this exquisite two-volume book set titled “The DiMaggio Albums”. It is indeed fitting that it took two hardbound volumes and a combined 800 pages to pay tribute to DiMaggio and his remarkable baseball exploits. Housed in a handsome red slipcover case featuring a color batting pose photo are two first edition books bound in blue cloth that display in pristine condition and appear to be unread.


The real prize of this offering is a professionally framed and matted retail bookstore display sign intended to promote sales of the DiMaggio Albums. This delightful piece takes the form of a partially die-cut image of DiMaggio batting over a red, white and blue diamond with the Yankee Stadium façade in the background. DiMaggio has signed at bottom center with masterful grace worthy of a perfect (“10”) designation. Mounted in a handsome 32-1/4 x 25-1/2” black metal frame, this dynamic display piece presents like-new. Full photo LOA from JSA.
