Description

Reach out and make contact with "Joltin' Joe" DiMaggio. Offered is a box of Spalding Dot golf balls in packaging addressed to DiMaggio at his San Francisco address. This box of twelve balls presents as factory fresh and is stored in an original mailing wrapper that is fairly clean and tight, though neatly sliced open at the left end. The address label has a Spalding logo at top and is addressed in full as "Joe DiMaggio, 2150 Beach, San Francisco, Calif. 94123". A metered UPS shipping label dated "11/4/68" is affixed at top and overlaps a small area of the Spalding factory label. The factory golf ball box is like-new and the balls are packed three per sleeve in unopened sleeves. The back of the paper packaging is stamped with "Here Are Your Spalding Personal Play Dots For Month Of ______" with "Nov" handwritten on the month line, indicating Joe received a similar package monthly. How this package tracked across five decades in unused state is a secret that DiMaggio has taken with him to the "Field of Dreams".
