This lot includes two Iconic autographed baseball books. The first is Joe DiMaggio’s classic tome “Lucky to be a Yankee” features Joltin' Joe's most iconic hit-streak image—a.k.a. "The Swing"—on both the front and back cover. None other than sports writing legend, Grantland Rice, pens the foreword. But the main attraction of course is DiMaggio's black-ballpoint (9/10) signature on the first page opposite the introduction on the large black and white photo of DiMaggio. EX book condition with slight signs of wear on the spine
Second book is author Fredrick Lieb’s “Connie Mack, Grand Old Man of Baseball” providing an overview of the life and times of legendary ball player, manager and team owner Cornelius McGillicuddy (Connie Mack).
