    Description

    1939 Play Ball Ted Williams #92 PSA NM-MT 8. 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.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. 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 thirteen representations in nearly 900 PSA submissions have bested the offered example. We expect investment-minded collectors to be paying close attention.
