Joe DiMaggio Signed Limited-Edition "1941" Bat
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,200
Special limited-edition Joe DiMaggio signature model Hillerich & Bradsby bat, numbered "768/1941," signed by Joe DiMaggio ("9") in blue sharpie on the sweet spot of the barrel. This is one of a series of 1,941 bats signed by DiMaggio, marketed in the 1990s. The number of bats in the series (1,941) was, of course, chosen to honor the year of DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak. There have been very few signed limited-edition bats which have been produced and marketed so professionally that they have withstood the test of time as extremely desirable commodities, especially prized for the assurance of authenticity they provide. The Mantle/Maris signed limited edition of 115 bats and the DiMaggio signed limited edition of 1,941 are rare exceptions. The bat (36 inches in length) remains in Mint condition. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. SOLD FOR $1,200
