1961 Wire Photo JOE DiMAGGIO & MARILYN MONROE. A Vintage 1961 Wire Photo issued by the Associated Press capturing Joe DiMaggio with none other than his ex-wife Marilyn Monroe on Opening Day at Yankee Stadium. It was around this time that there were rumors that the two were seeing each other again they were divorced in 1954. The photos captured by the AP a few days earlier in FL where the Yankees trained confirmed the rumors and there was even talk of a second try at holy matrimony for the two. Joe would bring Marilyn up to New York and here they are shown in the Dan Topping's owners box for the opener.
The 6-3/4" x 7-1/4" was used in newsprint publication at the time bearing a newspaper clipping and an APR 12 1961 stamp date on the reverse. Marilyn is in shades and Joe looks like he's on top of the world again waving his cigarette to the cameras. Sadly this is one of the last photos of the two captured together.
