    A Joe DiMaggio Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1980s. Depicting the baseball legend swinging a bat in his heyday, signed later in black felt-tip ink in the center "To Sly / Wish I had this / swing playing / golf / Best Wishes / Joe DiMaggio."
    Matted and Framed: 13 1/2" x 16 1/2"

    "When I lived in Florida, I would play golf with Joe DiMaggio and the world-renowned jockey, Eddie Arcaro, quite often. We were like the three Italian amigos. Joe, who was incredibly gracious, came to my house on many afternoons and one day I got him to sign this picture. Later on, I asked him if he would sign one to me that read "To Sylvester, the only man in the world who could break my record." He said, "Drop dead."
