Joe DiMaggio Autographed Memorabilia
Every collector wants a piece of Joe DiMaggio Autographed Memorabilia
There are names that every baseball fan knows. They are the greats of the game. The men that made countless memories for millions of fans. Names like Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle, and Lou Gehrig. And one name that every fan reveres, DiMaggio. Joe DiMaggio was more than just a baseball player. He was “Joltin’ Joe”. He was the “Yankee Clipper”. He was a cultural icon. Anything that he used in a game, wore, signed or even touched briefly is sought by anyone that calls themselves a baseball fan or a serious collector of baseball memorabilia. If it is associated with Joe DiMaggio, it is an item unlike any other piece of memorabilia.
Before he was the “Yankee Clipper”, he was just Joseph Paul DiMaggio. One of nine children born to an immigrant fisherman, it was expected that he would join his father’s line of work. But DiMaggio wouldn’t and the baseball world would forever be grateful. He would play semi pro baseball before getting a shot at the big leagues with the New York Yankees in 1936. At the time, the New York Yankees were not the powerhouse that we look at them as now. They were a struggling team that hadn’t been to the World Series in 4 years. The arrival of Joe DiMaggio would signal a change though. Just as Derek Jeter would decades later, DiMaggio’s contributions immediately led to a world championship. And it wouldn’t be the last either. In 13 seasons, DiMaggio would lead the Yankees to 9 World Series wins. Four of those wins would be in his first 4 seasons. Through those 13 seasons he would accomplish feats that would be remembered for years and decades to come.
One such feat was his 56 game hitting streak in 1941. It is a sports record, like Cal Ripken Jr.’s consecutive games played record that probably will never be broken. Nothing against today’s baseball players, but many just don’t have the dedication and pride in their craft that players like DiMaggio had. This was a man that was on a team of stars, but played like he would lose his job if he didn’t. When his Hall of Fame career ended in 1951, the baseball world lost one of its greatest players ever. Although he would remain in the public eye for the rest of his life, it was nothing compared to seeing him on the baseball field.
Given the career he had, it’s no surprise that any Joe DiMaggio autographed memorabilia is highly prized particularly Joe Dimaggio autographed baseballs. Over the years, there have been auctions of select items that have sold for some of the highest prices ever paid for sports related memorabilia. One of his game worn uniforms from the last World Series he played in was sold for nearly $200,000. Why not look for Joe Dimaggio autographed jerseys? Some of his baseballs have sold for tens of thousands of dollars. But the average collector doesn’t have to spend that much. There are numerous pieces of Joe DiMaggio autographed memorabilia that are available for more reasonable prices.
No matter what the price is, the value of Joe DiMaggio memorabilia will always be high. These items are related to one of the finest athletes ever.
