NEW IMMORTAL WORKS BY DICK PEREZ

Joe DiMaggio
“Best Seats in the House”

This most iconic image of DiMaggio’s 56-game streak (indeed, of the Yankee Clipper’s entire career!) hails from the laced single that surpassed George Sisler’s then-A.L.-record 41 straight games—a.k.a. “The Swing.” And perhaps just as much as Joe D’s picture-perfect follow-through, it’s the up-close-and-personal photographers who have always mesmerized viewers as a symbol of the halcyon innocence of baseball’s Golden Age.

The setting is Reno, Nevada, on July 4, 1910, in an outdoor stadium built solely for the purpose of this very battle. Jackson is in his prime, a finely oiled machine with a Herculean physique. Jeffries has come out of retirement and shed 100 pounds to regain his fighting weight.
