1941 R336 Play Ball #71 Joe DiMaggio PSA EX-MT 6

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $6,600

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Very sharp-looking 1941 Play Ball Joe DiMaggio, one of collecting's most famous cards, featuring the "Yankee Clipper" in his familiar swing-through pose. This striking example has four square corners, a crystal-clear image, and centering slightly to the left. There is light toning along the top border, and the reverse displays natural, even toning common to cards from this set. This card tends to be very difficult to find in high grade because it is #71 of 72 cards in the set. Kids often put these cards in numerical order, naturally subjecting the first and last few card numbers to additional wear. DiMaggio's 1941 MVP season was highlighted by his 56-game hitting streak, a Major League record that stands to this day. This milestone "career year" contributes to the great popularity of Joe DiMaggio's 1941 Play Ball card. An exceptional example of one of the key cards from the 1941 Play Ball set and one of the most iconic cards of the era. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $6,600
