1949 Joe DiMaggio "Footwork" Photograph

A Vintage 1949 Original News Service Photo issued by the New York Daily Mirror depicting an unusual close-up study of Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees – his footwork in the batters box! The anchors of the Yankee Clipper as we’ll call this one is an interesting shot that we have not seen of Joe. Original newspaper clipping on the reverse of this 8” x 10” that was used in actual publication at the time in the pages of the New York Daily Mirror. From the time when questions were raised on DiMaggio and the health of his ailing heel and how experts speculated that he was pretty much done as a ballplayer. In case you were wondering if those anchors held up that season - just go ask an old the Red Sox fan or read Roger Kahn’s best seller “Summer of 49” for your answer. Fascinating image of Joe D! This item comes with a Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA (Henry Yee and Marshall Fogel).
