Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>I have my suspicions but I don't want to bias the panel by saying who it "Might" be. Any guesses?<br /><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Hall%20Of%20Famer%20Photos//dimagio-1.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>The lady I bought the photo from swears that this was taken in 1951 at Spring Training...she says she was 5 years old when she took it with her little brownie camera. I thought DiMaggio looked too young for this to be 1951, but she says it has to be. Red Rolfe was out of baseball for many years by 1951.

Posted By: <b>bobw</b><p>If she swears its 1951, she would know when she took the photo. <br /><br />The only doubt I have is that the NY logo on the uniform is smaller than one that would be on a 1951 uniform. The Yankee NY was a little smaller in the 1940's.<br /><br />1951 Yankees<br /><br /><img src="http://www.thedeadballera.com/TeamPhotos/1951Yankees.jpg"><br /><br /><br />1942 Yankees<br /><br /><img src="http://www.thedeadballera.com/TeamPhotos/1942Yankees.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Yeah, I think she's wrong as Joe just looks too young for that to be 1951. She asked around on the ebay boards while she had it up on ebay and there was another photo of DiMaggio in her possession that was obviously taken another day because he's wearing a different uniform so I'm thinking she just doesn't remember.<br /><br /><a href="http://forums.ebay.com/db2/thread.jspa?messageID=1009447755&forumID=83&x#1009447755" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://forums.ebay.com/db2/thread.jspa?messageID=1009447755&forumID=83&x#1009447755</a>
