Joe DiMaggio, the Yankee Clipper, is one of the most iconic athletes of all time. His astounding career helped the Yankees win the World Series nine times. He was a Major League All-Star in every season. He won the Most Valuable Player Award three times. Outside of baseball, he experienced a high degree of public attention for his WWII military service and for his marriage with Marilyn Monroe. With as many pop culture references as anyone else in America, Joe DiMaggio was not just a hall of fame baseball player, but also a cultural force in the 20th century. In this two-volume set, The DiMaggio Albums pay tribute to his life in sports with photographs, articles, and DiMaggio’s own commentary. A multifaceted work, it is full of imagery that captures his career, paired with his autobiographical perspective.
