Mickey Mantle and Joe Dimaggio Autographed - COA #MJ56443
Obtained by an autograph collector/fan.
In 1999, the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) rated the 100 greatest players of all time. Mickey Mantle finished 12th. Joe DiMaggio finished sixth.
SABR is a respected organization that is on the cutting edge of innovation with respect to modern statistics, but their rankings can be questioned. Many fans, especially today's New York Yankees fans, rate Mantle ahead of DiMaggio.
DiMaggio's peak seasons occurred consecutively from his rookie season in 1936 through 1941, when he hit in 56 consecutive games. DiMaggio had a good year in 1942, but it was well below the seasons that had preceded it.
