An excerpt from their site:

“Steiner Sports is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Joe DiMaggio diaries. The coveted diaries were commenced in 1981 and continued through 1993. They captured some of Joe DiMaggio’s deepest and personal thoughts.

The Diaries were originally started as a tax record and a way to track Joe’s spending throughout the year; over time Joe found himself using the diaries as a way to convey his feelings and emotions. The legend of Joe DiMaggio transcends his performance on the baseball field; the diaries illustrate a man with a tireless work ethic and compassion for those in need.”
