    1952 Red Man Ted Williams #23 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5 - The Highest Graded Example! Without question, the most valuable and significant card from the 1952 Red Man Tobacco set features Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer, Ted Williams. It's a shame that this is the lone Red Man product to depict Williams as Ted would be called to serve in Korea in May, 1952 thus limiting his playing time in 1952 to just six games and less than 40 games in 1953. That in mind, we appreciate any opportunity to offer any copy but this is not just any copy. This is the reigning champion - the highest graded example from the famed issue and we can't imagine a better example existing. Virtually no chipping is present on the condition-sensitive edges and corners, hues are rich, the gloss only brings out the portrait on what is an important entry in any 1950's collection. Plus the all-important bottom coupon is still attached. Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. The only card to earn the right to be called "NM-MT+." There are none higher. What a spectacular image of the "Splendid Splinter" from this, the most desirable debut installment of Red Man (and Ted's only) card promotions.
