As America was engaged in battle far more grueling than the sandlot and stadium diamond tilts to which we were accustomed, Joe DiMaggio (and many other selfless stars) entered the service and honed his skills in a military game at Camp Cooke, California. This 1943 Real Photo Postcard captures DiMaggio in action on that military base. Encapsulated and Graded 30 GOOD by SGC, the wartime relic features a sepia-toned likeness of DiMaggio watching the flight of a ball he just walloped. One of only two known examples, the item features an unmarked reverse and presents even nicer than the technical assessment suggests.
