ShareThis

This week’s auction of 1,053 lots from the estate of Joe DiMaggio offers such essential pieces of Yankee Clipper–iana as his 1947 MVP Award (estimated value: $150,000 to $250,000). But some lots testify less to Joltin’ Joe’s achievements than to how frequently he was honored for those achievements. Also for sale: 299 baseballs, 285 golf balls (many personalized), 62 golf clubs, 57 watches (most with special-occasion engravings), 54 plaques, 39 trophies, 11 ceremonial plates and trays, 3 radios, 2 novelty baseball bats with golf-club heads attached, 1 telescope, 1 mandolin, 1 commemorative fireman’s helmet, 1 humidor, 1 coffee set, 1 handgun, 1 rifle, and 1 ice bucket.
