This oversized, beautifully-framed signed & numbered Limited Edition Artwork celebrates Yankees baseball legend Joe DiMaggio, New York Yankees Hall-of-Famer, All-Star, and 3-time American League MVP. Working closely with DiMaggio, artist Carlo Beninati created this artwork to commemorate DiMaggio's 80th birthday.
Personally hand-signed by Joe DiMaggio in blue pen, his signature "Joe DiMaggio" is bold and clear on the artwork. Before this rare series, DiMaggio had never partnered with an artist to sign artwork of himself. The signed artworks were released, in conjunction with DiMaggio's 80th birthday, on November 25, 1994. The work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity which incorporates a color photograph of Joe DiMaggio signing the artwork.
A serigraph with silver foil stamping, the work measures 35.5" in height x 29" width. It comes custom-framed and ready for display in a stately vintage rosewood-hued frame, with blue sueded mat and matching rosewood fillet. The framed size is 38.5" in height x 30.5" width. The work is hand-signed by the artist, Carlo Beninati, and is numbered 26 from the limited edition of 750 artworks. It also bears the embossed blind-stamp from the publisher and is notarized, further ensuring authenticity.
Joseph Paul "Joe" DiMaggio (1914-1999), born Giuseppe Paolo DiMaggio, was an American Major League Baseball center fielder who played his entire 13-year career for the New York Yankees. He is perhaps best known for his 56-game hitting streak (May 15 – July 16, 1941), a record that still stands.
Nicknamed "Joltin' Joe" and "The Yankee Clipper", DiMaggio was a three-time MVP winner and an All-Star in each of his 13 seasons. During his career with the Yankees, the club won ten American League pennants and nine World Series championships. At the time of his retirement, he ranked fifth in career home runs (361) and sixth in career slugging percentage (.579). Inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1955, DiMaggio was voted the sport's greatest living player in a poll taken during the baseball centennial year of 1969.
