1962-1971 Joe DiMaggio Official American-League Season Pass Collection from the DiMaggio Estate (8 Different Years)
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,997.50
Every year baseball's most important dignitaries and Hall of Fame legends are presented with special passes in leather wallet cases that allow them access to games. One would never expect Joe DiMaggio, for example, to pay for entrance to a game. We're not sure if anyone would have ever stopped Joe DiMaggio and insist on seeing his ticket or official pass, but if they did, one flash of his "Annual Pass To All Grounds" would put all inquiries to rest and allow him (and his party) the red carpet treatment. These eight American League passes, each representing a different year, were personally saved by Joe DiMaggio. All originate from the special estate auction of DiMaggio’s collection held in 2006 and were purchased by our consignor directly from that sale. The eight presentation American League season passes in this collection were issued to Joe DiMaggio between the years 1962 and 1971. Each pass is housed in its original leather case that comes complete with an American League pocket schedule for that respective year. All of the passes are made out to “Joseph P. DiMaggio and Party” and include the special printed designation “Member of Baseball’s Hall of Fame” in the lower left corner. The passes featured here are for the following years: 1962, 1963, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, and 1971. Also included with the passes is Joe DiMaggio’s 1966 membership card issued by the Old Time Ball Players’ Association of Wisconsin. These passes, especially with their leather cases, are very substantial and impressive. Each is in Near Mint condition, the very same perfect state as when originally issued to and received by Joe DiMaggio. Total: 8 passes. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,997.50
