1941 World Series Champions! Yankees Joe DiMaggio, Lefty Gomez, Charlie Keller, Bill Dickey, & Phil Rizzuto sign November 1941 Baseball Magazine cover

November 1941 issue of Baseball Magazine signed by 5 World Series-winning Yankees! Joe DiMaggio as "Joe DiMaggio", Vernon Gomez as "Lefty Gomez", Charles Keller as "Charlie Keller", Bill Dickey as "Bill Dickey" and Phil Rizzuto as "Phil Rizzuto" have autographed the magazine's front cover, a black and white team photo taken by William Greene. In very good to near fine condition. Minor water stains along margins and spine throughout. The inner pages with overall toning and light edge yellowing. Expected light folds and creases to covers. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.

 

This 47-page issue of Baseball Magazine, Vol. LXVII, no. 6, features beautiful full-page team photos of the New York Yankees, Brooklyn Dodgers, and St. Louis Cardinals on its front and back covers. Many black and white live action photos accompany its 19 articles, ranging from "They Waited 20 Years for Lefty" and "Fight and Frolic of '41", to "The Bat Bag" and "The Perfect Batting Order".

 

1941 was a banner year for the Yankees. The World Series and American League Champions seized their 12th pennant after defeating the Brooklyn Dodgers in 5 games. Manager Joe McCarthy led the team with a record of 101-54.

 

All of our signees played for most of their professional careers for the Yankees, and 4 of 5 were eventually inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Joe DiMaggio (1914-1999) played center field for the Yankees between 1936-1951, and Vernon "Lefty" Gomez (1908-1989) pitched for them between 1930-1942. Left fielder Charlie Keller (1916-1990) played almost uninterruptedly for the Yankees between 1939 and 1952. Catcher Bill Dickey (1907-1993) served as catcher for the Yankees between 1928-1946, and later returned as a coach. Phil Rizzuto (1917-2007) played shortstop for the Yankees between 1941-1956.

 

An incredible piece of baseball memorabilia, signed by 5 great baseball legends, one month before Pearl Harbor!
