Description



Before Pearl Harbor, before ballplayers like Joe DiMaggio served their patriotic duty in WWII, the 1941 Yankees posed for their official photography studio, Cosmo-Sileo. It was the team's 5th championship season in 6 years. It marked the first Yankees/Dodgers Subway Series in history. It was also the year of Lou Gehrig's poignant passing and, of course, DiMaggio's 56-game hit streak. As Betty Bonney of the Les Brown Orchestra famously sang, "He tied the mark at forty-four / July the 1st you know / Since then he's hit a good twelve more / Joltin' Joe DiMaggio / From coast to coast that's all you'll hear / Of Joe the one man show / He's glorified the horsehide sphere / Joltin' Joe DiMaggio." Here, the Yankee Clipper stands third from left in the top row on the Yankee Stadium sidelines. The blank-backed, 8x10 photo is clean except for minor corner wear and carries the desirable Cosmo-Sileo copyright mark at lower right. Encapsulated as Type I Authentic by PSA.
