Lot 1071: Joe DiMaggio Boudoir Photograph
Joe DiMaggio Boudoir Photograph Joe DiMaggio shown in all his glory basking in the showers of Yankee Stadium. Obviously aware of being photographed in such a state, he is seen smiling for the camera Shows a young Joe, perhaps still in the 1930s, still in his purest youth. We are not sure how the photo made it to this point but it is 100% authentic, first generation and vintage. We are covering Joe’s “Yankee Clipper” not out of our own bashfulness nor his, as we see this as no different that a Botticelli nude or a Robert Mapplethorpe. Photo is 8x10” and in GD condition. Photo does have a small tear in the bottom center and some emulsion cracks all around, due to aging. We will not send scans of the image barred or unbarred to protect its integrity and to retain the ultimate “value” for the buyer. No copyrights are assigned nor implied therein.
