BASEBALL MEMORABILIA


JOE DiMAGGIO BASEBALL COLLECTING

 Often described as a "picture player" Joe DiMaggio epitomized grace on the baseball diamond - both at bat and in center field. "The Yankee Clipper" won three MVP awards and in 13 seasons he amassed 361 homers. Included in the sale is a 1946 Joe DiMaggio Game-Used Bat which is estimated to sell for $15/20,000. 


Mickey Mantle baseball card:
part of the famous 1952 Topps Baseball Card Set

 While 1951 marked the end of DiMaggio's career it was also the dawn of the next generation of Yankee greats with the arrival of Mickey Mantle. Foreshadowing his success, the Yankees assigned the young prodigy uniform number "6," the next in a sequence that included Babe Ruth ("3"), Lou Gehrig ("4") and Joe DiMaggio ("5").
