    Description

    1954 Wilson Franks Ted Williams SGC 40 VG 3. For a brief span during the spring and summer of 1954, packages of Wilson Franks hot dogs came paired with now highly prized 2-5/8 x 3-3/4" baseball cards. The brief, 24-man roster is spiced up with names like Campanella, Fox and Feller but none generate the reverence and awe as does the name Theodore Samuel (Ted) Williams. Topps wisely honored Williams with both the first and last card of their standard production, legal issues kept his Bowman from circulation leaving regionally circulated promotions to satisfy card, and hot dog hungry fans. Graded SGC 40 VG 3. SGC has graded only 45 examples compared to almost 1,300 Topps varieties.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
