1936 R314 Joe DiMaggio Signed ROOKIE Goudey (POP 1) W/ Rookie Era Signature PSA
The first Joe DiMaggio cards date back to the 1930s, even before he cracked the Yankees lineup for the first time. Because the collecting landscape was so different back then and a lot of cards came as premiums with other products, there's much debate over exactly which card is the Joe DiMaggio rookie. This card is certainly one of his first issues and features the highly touted rookie with Manager Joe McCarthy. Not only is this card a rare Joe DiMaggio rookie card dating to his true rookie season of 1936, but it also has been signed by DiMaggio with a rookie era signature as well! Stunning bold fountain pen autograph. While the card does exhibit some creasing and tape on the reverse, the real value is in the scarcity of this card being signed during DiMaggio's rookie campaign or shortly thereafter. There may not be another one of these cards signed.
While 30 of the DiMaggio McCarthy 1936 Goudey Premiums have ever been graded by PSA, this is THE ONLY one ever to receive an authentic Grade with an Autograph.
