1944-45 Official American League "REACH" Baseball Single signed by HOF NYY Joe Dimaggio
This is a beautifully clean and rare 1940's (1944-1945) REACH brand Official American League baseball (William Harridge, Pres) hand signed, single signed and personalized by NYY HOF'er Joe DiMaggio. This ball was signed on the east panel in a full signature style with an exaggerated "J" and two exaggerated "G's"!
The personalization is faded but it ends with..."The Smartest Fellow I know. sincerely Joe DiMaggio" which is completely clear and legible.
This ball has been appraised and certified by JSA (James Spence Authentication) and comes with a full LOA!
This REACH Baseball comes from the period of time from 1942-1944 when the company added a third star to its ball logo. This autograph is very different and unique from 95% of all the DiMaggio signatures found in the market today. It comes from very early in his career when his signature was more sweeping and had loops and swirls in the signature.
A great, rare autograph on a highly collectible ball! It is a vintage, period specific, beauty!
