Large and exceptional c. 1958 photograph of two of the biggest names to ever play for the New York Yankees, reunited in uniform for one of the only times in their career. Mickey Mantle was at the height of his career while Joe DiMaggio was still recently retired, and now recently divorced from Marilyn Monroe, and looking to capture some of the magic of Yankee Stadium one last time. Taken from a low angle intentionally to portray these men in a god-like stature, the image is the work of famous photographer Don Wingfield and it bears his early Virginia stamp on the reverse. One of the only "Vintage 1" or "Type 1" examples of this photograph known in the hobby, this one is an investment grade 10/10!
