Joe DiMaggio Photograph Signed To Barry Halper

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $812.00

Magnificent large-format color photograph (11 x 14 inches) of Joe DiMaggio, in suit and tie, making a rare appearance on the mound, throwing out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium. This photograph was signed by DiMaggio to his good friend, legendary collector Barry Halper. The photo is signed and inscribed "To Barry -- At least I was able to reach the catcher. Best Wishes, Joe DiMaggio" in blue sharpie pen. The signature and inscription are flawless ("10"). DiMaggio would rarely sign with elaborate or humorous inscriptions, and would only do so on occasion for close friends. The fact that no one in the collecting world was more closely associated with Joe DiMaggio than Barry Halper gives this signed photograph a very interesting, special, and unique additional dimension of interest. Mint condition. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $812.00
