Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio Signed Photo Collection From DiMaggio's Personal Collection (3)
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $822.50
Significant collection of three Joe DiMaggio and/or Mickey Mantle photos, two of which originate directly from DiMaggio's estate. 1) 20 x 16-inch color photo of DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, and Duke Snider posing together at Shea Stadium during an Old Timers' Day event (circa 1980). Signed by both DiMaggio and Mantle in blue Sharpie (grading "10"). This photo originates directly from DiMaggio's estate and is accompanied by a letter of provenance signed by his two granddaughters. Legend has it that DiMaggio was not particularly fond of Mantle, perhaps in part due to jealousy as Mantle replaced DiMaggio not just in the Yankees lineup, but in the hearts of many Yankees fans. This is one of the few Mantle signed pieces found in DiMaggio's personal collection at the time of this passing. Near Mint condition. Matted and framed to total dimensions of 29 x 24.5 inches. 2) 20 x 16-inch color photo (printed on board) of DiMaggio and Mantle posing together at an Old Timers' Day event (circa 1970s). Not signed. The photo captures both players in extreme close-up, making for a rare and definitive image of the two legendary Hall of Famers together. This photo originates directly from DiMaggio's estate and is accompanied by a letter of provenance signed by his two granddaughters. Ex-Mt. Framed to total dimensions of 23.5 x 19.5 inches. 3) 8 x 10-inch color photo picturing Mantle in uniform, standing in front of the batting cage. Signed in blue Sharpie (grading "10") on the front. Nr/Mt. Matted and framed to total dimensions of 14.25 x 16.5 inches. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 3 photos (2 signed). Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $822.50
