Extraordinary Hoard of Joe DiMaggio Signed 8 x 10-Inch Photographs (83)

Starting Bid - $4,000.00, Sold For - $8,812.50

Presented in this lot is Barry Halper's "private stock" of Joe DiMaggio autographed photos: eighty-three signed Joe DiMaggio photographs, each long ago personally signed for Barry by DiMaggio. When Barry Halper was called upon for a special charity auction lot, needed a gift for a Yankee fan, or an item to show appreciation for a favor, he would often go to his private stock of Joe DiMaggio signed photographs. The box in which these signed photographs were found probably at one time held several hundred signed prints. Eighty-three remain and they are offered here as a single lot. The eighty-three 8 x 10-inch photographic prints of DiMaggio are each signed by the famed "Yankee Clipper" in blue Sharpie. Four different images of DiMaggio are represented. All but four of the prints are in color. The majority of the color prints (50) picture DiMaggio walking onto the dais at a Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Of the remaining color prints, twenty-eight picture him in a batting stance and one captures him in extreme close-up. The four black-and-white prints picture him in uniform from the waist up. The b/w prints are each inscribed "Best Wishes Joe DiMaggio," while the remainder are simply signed "Joe DiMaggio." All of the signatures grade a perfect "10" and the prints are in Near Mint condition. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 83 photos. Reserve $4000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $8,812.50
