Joe DiMaggio painting (11X14)
Lost Ballparks artist Michael Koser has created a new series of original paintings, "Lost Ballparks Legends" featuring some of baseball's all-time greats.
This item, a painting of New York Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio on an 11x14 wood canvas, is 1 of 1. There is no other like it.
DiMaggio the "Yankee Clipper" played his entire 13 year career for the Yankees and (deep breath) was a 13x All-Star, 9x (Yes 9!!!) World Champion, 3x AL MVP, MLB record holder for 56 game hitting streak, member of MLB's "All Century Team" and the Baseball Hall of Fame. And he spent 2 1/2 years in the middle of that remarkable career serving in our armed forces!
"There was an aura about him. He walked like no one else walked. He did things so easily. He was immaculate in everything he did. Kings of State wanted to meet him and be with him. He carried himself so well. He could fit in any place in the world.” - Teammate Phil Rizzuto
“I wish everybody had the drive he had. He never did anything wrong on the field. I'd never seen him dive for a ball, everything was a chest-high catch, and he never walked off the field.” Teammate Yogi Berra
“DiMaggio was the greatest all-around player I ever saw." - Ted Williams
