The first book authored by dimaggio, very rare to find within the first 4 years it was published, most collectors holdings are from 1951 - 1957 and few are good condition that are seen from 1949 or earlier. A fantastic story and a wonderful read it is a great look into what an amazing life it must be to be a part of the most famous and most world series championship teams ever to play the game. Lucky to be a Yankee is what Joe was surely aware of and he proclaimed it as any player dubbed the "Yankee Clipper" should! You can find a truly beautiful copy that is as rare as they come in books written about sports , this one is a hand signed and fully authenticated by Professional Sports Authenticators ( PSA/DNA ), it's up For Auction On eBay and was just listed today January 24, 2007. If you love the Yankees, Baseball, or Joe Dimaggio check the auction out its being listed by Laguna Beach Auctions or visit them at to check it out.
