1937-1939 Orcajo Cincinnati Reds Postcard Joe DiMaggio PSA EX 5

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,800

Graded EX 5 by PSA. Exceptional example of the key card to the Orcajo Cincinnati Reds Postcards set, Joe DiMaggio. Any baseball fan will immediately recognize that DiMaggio never played for the Reds, but the Orcajo company inexplicably opted to include him in its set. The postcard, which measures 3.5 x 5.5 inches, features a superb black-and-white photo of DiMaggio printed on glossy stock, with a standard postcard reverse and an Orcajo Photo Art, Dayton, Ohio tagline. The offered postcard appears at first glance to be Near Mint, with perfect centering, a flawless surface, and light touches of wear to the corners. It has been downgraded to EX due to a tiny, almost imperceptible, wrinkle on the otherwise clean reverse. This is the ONLY example of DiMaggio graded by PSA at any level! (SGC has a single FAIR 20 example on record.) This is an extremely attractive example of a young Joe DiMaggio, early in his career, from this infrequently encountered 1930s team postcard set. SOLD FOR $1,800
