Lot 1350: Joe DiMaggio Signed "Playboy #1"
The genuine article sold in Barry Halper's auction for $30-thousand, making this the sane man's choice (and only chance) for the greatest DiMaggio display piece on earth. DiMaggio perfect blue sharpie signature was acquired at a signing by placing a clear plastic transparency over a photograph. That transparency was then burned with the image of the Playboy cover, leaving the autograph untouched. Voila! A little sneaky, but don't you wish you had thought of it? You better believe Joe would be pissed if he knew though.
