Rarely do collectors get a shot at a photo that contains three of the greatest hitters of all time, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and Ted Williams. It is even more rare for a photo to contain three signatures as clearly readable and written against as good a background as this potential 8″ X 10″ addition to a real fan’s collection. The signatures, written in bold blue ink, appear to be unhurried efforts and grade 9-10. A fan with a keen sense of baseball history would present this picture to his friends as an example of how Ted Williams was present during the passing of the torch on the Yankees from DiMaggio to Mantle. The Boston slugger played against Mantle and DiMaggio at times when both of the Bronx Bombers were at their peaks.
