Description

    1939 Play Ball Ted Williams #92 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5 - None Higher. He entered the Majors intent upon a future in which baseball fans would point at him and whisper, "There goes the greatest hitter that ever lived." Twenty-one years later, he would retire with that wish fulfilled. It's a fact that makes the presented cardboard commemorative one of the most essential trading cards in the hobby, deriving from the most important issue released during the historic Baseball Centennial season.

    Arguably there is no more important vintage in the entirety of a century and a half of professional baseball history, a year that saw the debut of Williams, the tearful farewell of Gehrig, and the ribbon-cutting of the Hall of Fame. But the better part of eight decades that have elapsed since the 1939 season has not laid a glove upon this nearly pristine relic. In fact, only seven other representations from over 300 SGC submissions have equaled the offered example, none have rated higher.

    Those following the soaring trajectory of post-war rookies have cause to see enormous opportunity in this pre-war model. We expect investment-minded collectors to be paying close attention.
