    Description

    1939 Play Ball Ted Williams (Sample) #92 SGC EX+ 5.5. 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." 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 and this was his rookie card debut. This is more than your standard '39 Play ball. The back clearly displays the rarely encountered "FREE SAMPLE CARD" advertisement. There are only eight of this rare "Sample" version found on the PSA census with no mention on the SGC legacy census. Graded SGC EX+ 5.5.
