For the last few years, I have been trying to put together a collection of baseballs signed by every member elected to the Hall of Fame. ( I don't count the Veteran's committee selections as true HOF'ers.) I have been focusing on players elected from 1960 on as the pre-1960 selections are super expensive. However, I really wanted a ball signed by Joe DiMaggio as he is just one of those baseball icons.

I finally pulled the trigger on this ball signed by Joe and inscribed "Yankee Clipper". It came with letters of authenticity from PSA/DNA and Joe D Enterprises, so I felt pretty good about it's authenticity. It's a really nice white ball and has a portrait of Joe D on a side panel. I'd say it's the jewel of my collection so far, that is until I get a Jackie Robinson ball :winking0071:
