Circa 1980 DiMaggio/Mantle/Maris Signed Photo - Extreme Signing Combination Rarity
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,763
This extremely rare and desirable signed photo features the signatures of three of the greatest players in Yankees history: Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and Roger Maris. The 8 x 10-inch black-and-white photo captures the trio in uniform as they pose together during a Yankees Old Timers' Day game sometime during the late 1970s or early 1980s. Each player has signed the photo in blue Sharpie atop his respective image, with the DiMaggio and Mantle signatures grading "10" and the Maris signature grading "9." This is one of the most elusive signature combinations in the hobby, mainly because Maris passed away in 1985, just prior to the "signing show" boom. Maris didn't start attending Yankees Old Timers' Day games until the late 1970s; therefore, there was only a small window of time in which Maris could have signed this photo. This is the first DiMaggio/Mantle/Maris photo we have ever offered and we cannot recall having seen another at auction. In Near Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,763
