    Description

    Ted Williams' Personal Copy of "The Art of Hitting .300." He posted a .406 average in 1941, a mark unequalled since. So for Ted, the art of hitting .300 is hardly artistic at all. Nonetheless, the Splinter was about 60 years old when this volume was published, so maybe he was just being realistic about his chances after 20 years of retirement. Huge notation on inner cover reads, "Property Ted Williams." We can see that he began to write with a dying marker, then switched to pen, which remains in 10/10 condition. The book shows mild wear at the edges, but nothing significant. A great conversation piece. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $750 - $1,250.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
