Before Hall of Fame legend Joe DiMaggio hung up his spikes for good at age 37, he made one last baseball jaunt through Japan after his poor 1951 season. While over in Asia, the "Yankee Clipper" signed this baseball, which was found in Japan and is one of the last balls - if not THE last ball - DiMaggio ever signed before announcing his retirement in December. Comes with a full JSA LOA. The baseball itself is 1944-54 with the signature in fountain pen ink. Condition as shown.
