Wanna buy Joe DiMaggio’s shotgun?

Joe DiMaggio

When Joe DiMaggio hit in his 42nd straight game in 1941 — breaking the old record of 41 — he was presented with a shotgun. Neat!  Now that shotgun is up for auction.  Double neat!  The details of it are set forth in the “Gun Nut” column over at Field & Stream. Which I’m pretty sure is the first time I ever found myself surfing on the Field and Stream website.

I’m not gonna bid. I’m no hunter and have no real use for the thing.  Now, if they auction off any special edition Mr. Coffee coffee makers he may have owned, I may be on board.

    One of the best shotguns of all time. The good thing is you can fire this without ruining the value since the stock has been replaced. It also good to know that Joe D. was an avid hunter, makes me respect him even more, just like Ted Williams.
