Been looking for this DiMaggio for a long time, and finally settled on this one for its combination of eye appeal and price.

Pretty thrilled with this pickup and an upgrade to boot.

Never been a fan of 58s but when I saw this one I really under appreciated how awesome they can look with the right appeal.

Picked this up on eBay for less than $34 after tax & shipping. Not bad for nearly 1,500 career home runs.

Nice card, Eric.
I picked one up, although not as nice as yours, a few years ago for basically the same reason.

I am very pleased with this one:



The back is off but the front just nails it.

Very nice Clemente, I have never seen a back that wasn't off, I think there was a front/back registration problem when the cards were produced.

Yep, mine is O/C left to right. Not tilted like Adam's though.

Nice card Ex-man.

They practically don't. That's a gorgeous card, congrats.

Mine is sharp enough to probably be a 7 or close too, but resides in a BVG 5 slab due to the centering being off noticeably left to right. Oh well, I'm over such perfection concerns on every single thing anymore. If I went after a truly centered '67 set - even just in midgrade, I'd probably get less than 15% of the way there before I died. I don't like egregious tilt or centering close enough to be confused with miscut, but moderate centering issues are something I've come to live with over the past 5 years or so.

Thats funny...I have an OC 67 Aaron that is easily a 6 or 7 outside of being OC...I found a PSA 3 that was perfectly centered...I bought it, popped it...and that card is now in my binder! Has a slight wrinkle barely noticable...one of the only times I chose a centered card over a OC tight card. I was just so happy and surprised to see one centered. The card here is AMAZING...

Here is my 67T Aaron. As you may be able to tell, I went for tight over centered too.
