Beautifull 7.5" x 9.25" original Type 1 photograph depicting "The Yankee Clipper," Joe DiMaggio batting against the Brooklyn Dodgers. Based upon paper caption on verso, Brooklyn catcher Ferrell Anderson is behind the plate as DiMaggio takes a cut and an umpire looks on. We can definitively date this photo to 1946 as Anderson's career only consisted of 79 games for Brooklyn, all during that 1946 season, then made a brief comeback appearing in 18 games for the 1953 Cardinals. It's likely the image was captured during spring training when both teams were working out in Florida and before Anderson was assigned his regular #14. Photo remains in magnificent overall condition with sharp corners and a clean surface with Potter & Feltman logo appearing in the lower-right corner, attributing the photo to their service or studio. Verso also remains clean save for handwritten notifications detailing the action depicted. Authenticated and encapsulated as a Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA.
