30 Day Challenge: Day 29
Day 29: A Favorite Card From Before 1950, Whether You Own It Or Not
1941 Play Ball #63 Dom Dimaggio
One of the better baseball themed books I've read was "The Teammates", which told the story of the lifelong friendship between Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, Johnny Pesky, and Dom Di Maggio. Williams and Doerr are Hall of Famers, and Pesky has his number retired by the Red Sox. That leaves the younger brother of Joe, who was a great player in his own right. "The Little Professor" has a fairly strong Hall of Fame case himself, and is one of those players I wish I could have seen play. I wouldn't mind owning a card of Dom someday, whether it's this one of another.
