In his prime, he was the perfect ballplayer - the complete package of speed, power, fielding ability and baseball smarts that made him a baseball hero and an American legend. In a career that included 13 All-Star appearances, three MVP awards, nine World Series Championships, and enshrinement in the Hall of Fame, one amazing mid-summer streak cemented his status as a true sporting icon. From May 15 until July 16, 1941, Joe DiMaggio got at least one hit in every game - the magical 56-game hitting streak that most baseball experts agree will never be surpassed.

With spectacular vintage sepia-toned photography from the Corbis-Bettmann Archive, this amazing poster celebrates "The Streak"in truly classic style. From June 29, 1941 at a jam-packed Griffith Stadium in Washington, D.C., it features the swing that extended his record-smashing run to 41 straight games - a double to left off Senators starting pitcher Dutch Leonard in Game 1 of a doubleheader. The image displays Joe's perfectly balanced right-handed power stroke that no one else has been able to duplicate with the same beauty, flair, and success ever since. An absolutely spectacular shot of the Yankee Clipper at the zenith of his career, this is the perfect way to decorate the wall of any fan of the golden age of baseball!
