Displayed is a signed photo of three superb outfielders who all played their entire career with only one team: Hall of Fame Boston Red Sox left fielder Ted Williams, Boston Red Sox center fielder Dom DiMaggio, and New York Yankees center fielder Joe DiMaggio. No date is listed with the photo, but from the apparent ages of the players the photo is circa late 1940s-50, and it seems that the photo was taken at Boston's Fenway Park. On the left is Williams, the last man to hit .400, when he batted .406 in 1941. Despite missing the equivalent of about five full seasons, Williams still managed 521 homers and the 2-time AL MVP was a 6-time batting champ. In the middle of the photo, Dom DiMaggio was an excellent defensive center fielder and leadoff batter who batted .298 lifetime. He missed three playing years because of military service. He was a 7-time All-Star and led the American League two times in runs scored, and once in triples and in stolen bases. On the right is Dom's big brother, Hall of Famer Joltin' Joe DiMaggio. DiMaggio missed three years for military service in a career, all with the Yankees, from 1936-42 & 1946-51. He hit .325 lifetime, with 361 home runs, and there are persons who say they never saw him make a mental mistake on a baseball field. He was a 3-time AL MVP, a 2-time batting champion, and a 9-time World Champion. The Yankee Clipper holds the all-time Major League consecutive game hitting streak record with his 56-game triumph in 1941. The 8x10" black & white photo has been signed by all three players: Williams with a blue marker, with Dom and Joe DiMaggio in blue ink. The signed photo is in excellent condition, and it has been encapsulated and PSA/DNA certified as AUTHENTIC AUTO.
