Joe DiMaggio's Glove

The Yankee Clipper’s glove from the 1938 and 1939 seasons, which he used in the Yankee’s World Series victories over the Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati, respectively, is in need of repair.

In addition to some rust and corrosion issues on the grommets and metal components, this glove has a serious break on the palm which needs stabilization and repair. A custom insert would help the glove retain its shape and keep it from collapsing and causing further cracking and breakage.

Estimated conservation cost: $1,500
