Oh, to have been a fly on the dugout wall for the conversations between these diamond legends! Dated 10/25/37, Wide World's paper caption reads, "BIG LEAGUERS PRESENT, PAST AND FUTURE - Hereabouts the question is mooted whether Joe DiMaggio is a greater baseball player than the great Ty Cobb. Fifteen thousand fans looked both of them over in the CYO benefit tilt between major and minor leaguers at San Francisco Seals Stadium. Left to right here are: Joe DiMaggio, Yankees sensation; Ty Cobb, the Georgia Peach; Dominic DiMaggio, Joe's brother who is going great for the San Francisco Seals, with Major League promise; and Frank 'Lefty' O'Doul, former Giants' star, now managing the San Francisco Seals of the Pacific Coast League." Condition of the 7" x 9" photo is EX/MT with tremendous image clarity and contrast, plus minor rippling and background masking. Encapsulated as Type I by PSA/DNA. LOA for Type I by PSA/DNA.
