    Description

    1954 Topps Ted Williams #1 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. Collectors are well aware that first and last cards from any set tend to be particularly difficult to find in high grade, as they tended to bear the brunt of environmental impacts during storage. These complications are typically compounded when those cards feature top stars, which were typically handled and traded more than the "commons." The 1954 Topps Baseball issue was a Ted Williams sandwich, with the superstar slugger appearing on both the first and final cards in the set of 250. Here we encounter one of the finest known examples of the latter. But the Splinter is Splendid here, boasting bright colors, flawless registration, and corners sharp enough to cut a steak. This first card in the 1954 Topps set was very nearly Teddy Ballgame's last playing-days card, period, as the Red Sox hero attempted to retire on September 26, 1954 but launched a very successful comeback in 1955. Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5.
