Description

    1939 Play Ball Ted Williams #92 PSA NM-MT 8. A master stroke in the fine art of understatement is found in the back-text of this marvelous Ted Williams rookie card, wherein the writers for Gum, Inc. cited the opinion of "experts" in noting that the youthful Boston prospect "has a great future." Although, granted, Williams hadn't yet enjoyed the opportunity to impress baseball fans on the game's grandest stage, it was apparent that the young player was poised to make history, and that he would become a credible rival for the sport's prevailing gold standard, Joe DiMaggio. The Sox legend is shown in an intimidating batting stride and, while the crisply detailed photographic likeness allows the viewer to experience what he contributed to the game.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. Among a total census of well over 900 PSA-graded submissions, thirteen examples have been able to best this high quality card. A search for condition liabilities yields a small stain in the upper portion on the reverse, only trace amount of wear at the corner tips. This collectible's image of the "Splinter" is positioned inside four untoned borders just a small percentage away from perfection. The rookie appearance we should add in case the true importance of this card escapes you.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $18,000 - up.
