Presented is an original squadron portrait of Joe DiMaggio’s first military assignment at the Santa Ana Army Air Base in California. This 31-1/2 x 10-3/4 framed black-and-white photo was taken on March 16, 1943, exactly a month after the slugger’s enlistment. DiMaggio is easily discerned in the back row, sixth solider from the left. The original photo has been preserved very well, though (13) light, evenly spaced vertical creases are present from having been previously rolled and stored. The frame shows some significant wear around the edges.
