Passing and receiving the torch virtually without incident, Yankee centerfield greats Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle were members of the 1951 World Championship team, and combined for an additional 14 Fall Classic titles throughout their respective careers. These (2) vintage wire photos reveal the pair at different junctures of their playing and post-career days. The black-and-white photos feature printed captions and include a 10x8 1964 photo depicting the well-dressed pair at DiMaggio's 50th birthday party in San Francisco. A second photo (1970, 8x10) shows the pair waving appreciatively to the Yankee Stadium crowd, as their plaques were unveiled in Monument Park. Both have wire service stampings on the reverse and show (EX-MT) quality with insignificant creases.
