DiMaggio had a problem with the smaller batting pose I did of him in the painting he is sitting under. “If I had swung like that I’d have struck out every time,” he commented. We were asked by the owner of the painting to produce the reference photo that I used. My partner Frank Steele agreed with the understanding that Joe signs the material acknowledging that we were correct in our portrayal. Frank produced the book with the photo, Joe grudgingly signed it and that was the last I heard of the problem.
