The offered 1937 statuesque batting photograph of Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio is simply put, his greatest image we have ever seen. A double weight highly silvered original, this has the look and feel of a museum quality relic of an old world master photographer with the look and feel of a true work of art. The use of light and shadows to accentuate the light jersey against the darkened backdrop of Yankee Stadium is a masterful use of the photographic art form. DiMaggio is taken from a low angle, making him look like a Greek stature, and the quality and clarity of the image is out of this world! A vintage original with a rare 1930's Wide World photos stamp on the back, this is one of the most beautiful images of any baseball player we have ever handled and the best image of Joe DiMaggio that has ever been offered for sale, period! Photo has a small crease on the right side but otherwise it is beautiful.
