Even the most advanced collector working on completing the Joe DiMaggio checklist is likely missing this example of "The Yankee Clipper." Before he made his assault on the major leagues, Joe D. was tearing up the Pacific Coast League, batting .398 with 34 home runs and 270 hits in 1935. DiMaggio's first card, his "pre-rookie" card as it were, is this extremely rare Zeenut card, missing the coupon but certainly appearing much stronger to the eye than a grade of SGC 10 POOR 1. The lowered grade is due to some paper loss on the blank reverse, but that is forgivable when viewing the amazing projection of the central image. Barely out of his teenage years, DiMaggio had already conquered the PCL and is pictured at the end of his iconic follow-through, ready to extend the Yankees' dynasty for several more decades, eventually passing the torch to another teenager that would man the centerfield post named Mickey Mantle. Zeenut humorously misspelled his name as "DeMaggio" but it wouldn't be long before everyone knew how to spell it. Don't miss this opportunity to pick up the grand prize of the Joe DiMaggio checklist!
1933-36 Zeenut PCL Joe DiMaggio SGC 10 POOR 1
