1938 Photograph of young Joe DiMaggio as he artfully feigned that he was "Waking Up", symbolic of opening day baseball having arrived in New York. A clear and bold early image with a date stamp on the back and issued by Acme. From a more youthful and playful DiMaggio that had not yet been jaded by the press and fans, this captures him like few images after the 1939 season after Lou Gehrig retired and the spotlight was thrust on the young superstar.
