    Description

    1959 Fleer Ted Williams # 68 "Ted Signs for 1959" SGC 96 Mint 9. A mint example of the toughest card from the 1959 Fleer Ted Williams issue, this card is perfect in every respect with four sharp corners, 50/50 centering, and un-improvable focus and print quality. Card number 68 was withdrawn from production because Fleer didn't have permission to use the image of Red Sox General Manager Bucky Harris, who is pictured on this card with Ted as he signs his contract for the 1959 season. Ted was such a tremendous star for card manufacturers that companies annually fought for his contract and Fleer secured his cooperation for its 1959 issue. This represents one of only six examples that have achieved Mint status from SGC with none grading higher.
