Description

    1941 Ted Williams Signed Photograph by George Burke, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8. Hobby history was made in July 2015 when Heritage recorded a price of over $10,000 for a rookie-era Burke photo of an ascendant Splendid Splinter, bearing Williams' early format signature. We're pleased and privileged to present its sibling here, a different image but the same photographer, the same dimensions (3.25x5.5") and the same rookie-era autograph variant.

    Williams' blue fountain pen ink signature rates an impressive NM-MT 8, and photo verso holds the important George Burke studio stamp and handwritten text indicating that Williams sent the signed photo to an admirer in June of 1941, a season immortalized for the Red Sox superstar's summitting of the nearly impossible .400 batting average plateau. This is unquestionably one of the most desirable Williams-signed relics ever to cross the hobby's auction block. Photo exhibits minor edge/corner wear, but no distractions of significance. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8.
