Graded NM 7 by PSA. Extremely crisp, high-grade example of Joe DiMaggio's most recognizable card produced at the very beginning of his Major League career. One of card collecting's classics of the era, this is one of the keys to the 1939 Play Ball set, and one of the most popular of all prewar baseball cards. This striking example has four sharp corners (a little wear on the bottom right), with a crystal-clear image of the "Yankee Clipper" in a portrait pose, and is centered slightly to the bottom right (approximately 65/35 L/R and T/B). Perfectly clean, both front and back. This is a particularly outstanding high-grade example (especially for the assigned grade) of one of the key cards from the 1939 Play Ball set and one of the most popular cards of the era. The SMR value in assigned grade is $1,250. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,304
