Presented is a Joe DiMaggio signature featured on a one-of-a-kind, hand-painted baseball by artist Charles Fazzino, commemorating the legendary New York Yankee player’s career. DiMaggio was a three-time Most Valuable Player Award winner and an All-Star in each of his 13 seasons. During his tenure with the Yankees, the club won ten American League pennants and nine World Series championships.

The Hall of Fame outfielder has signed his name in blue pen on the sweet spot. To the left of his signature is a painting of DiMaggio at bat, over a light blue and white background with red highlights, and the legend in black “56 Game Hit Streak Joltin Joe”. To the right of his signature is a painting of DiMaggio at bat from the back, with the legend “Yankee Clipper Hall of Fame 1955”. 

The artist, Fazzino, has signed his name in black paint opposite DiMaggio. To the left of Fazzino’ s signature is an illustration of DiMaggio’s former wife, Marilyn Monroe, painted in a New York Yankees uniform. To the right of his signature is the legend, painted in black on a white background with red underlining, “I want to thank the good Lord for making me a Yankee.” There is a 3D New York Yankees logo button in red, white and blue affixed over the legend.” There are several rhinestones dotted on the baseball, as well as silver glitter. This baseball comes with a full LOA from JSA (BB30326) and a LOA from the artist, Charles Fazzino.
