$37049.05

All to infrequent over the last seven decades, Chicago Cubs October encounters were once anticipated with reasonably high hopes. Historically speaking, Joe DiMaggio's thirteen-season career saw annual fortunes in sharp contrast to those of the Cubs. All told, the Yankee Clipper played in more Fall Classics (10) in his short tenure than the Cubs have taken part in for better than a century. The offered ball captures the spirit of both tradition rich franchises. An absolute treasure, this ONL (Frick) example was purportedly the very sphere that DiMaggio launched for a home run in Game 2 of the 1938 World Series at Chicago's Wrigley Field. With the Yankees clinging to a 3-2 advantage in the top of the ninth inning and Tommy Henrich (single) on base, DiMaggio turned on a Dizzy Dean offering and hit the presented orb into the left field bleachers. The evenly toned ball shows slight abrasions that are consistent with game use. The ONL stampings are correct for the year—as well as for the event—as the host league provided balls for the appropriate contests (long prior to the manufacture of Official World Series balls). Following the curves of the laces, an aged inscription reads: "Joe DiMaggio's home run. 2nd game. 1938 world series. Chicago. Cubs park." Provenance accompanies in the form of a handwritten copy, notarized letter. Dated February 1, 1996, the letter reads (in part) as follows: "To whom it may concern: I David Stowell purchased this ball from the Olson's and to best of my knowledge, it is the real thing. Reference to this ball is on page 158 of Total Baseball second edition." An additional LOA attesting to the ball's status as a DiMaggio World Series home run ball is signed by the son of the fan who originally retrieved the keepsake. Letter of Opinion from MEARS The two letters of provenance, from previous owners, are copies of the original letters. We accept paypal, cashier's checks, and money orders. All sales are final, so please offer accordingly. Payment is due within 5 days after the close of the sale.
