    1937 Ted Williams Signed High School Yearbook. Already a Pacific Coast Leaguer while still in high school, The Kid would get the call from the Boston Red Sox during winter meetings in 1937, setting into motion the career of the most decorated figure in Fenway history. Here we present the school annual dating to that pivotal year in Williams life, acquired from the family of one of Ted's senior classmates at San Diego's Herbert Hoover High School. The hardcover volume pictures the handsome youngster on page 21 with the simple caption "Williams, Ted, Baseball." Even more exciting is the very early autograph on the inside rear cover of the book, reading simply "Ted (V.H.)." We do not know what the initials are meant to convey. The rarest of Williams signature variations, this specimen survives at 8/10 boldness. The cover of the yearbook is slightly warped with age, but there is no staining or tearing, and the binding remains tight and solid. Interior pages exhibit no issues of note. A rare relic for the advanced Williams collector. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
