    Description

    1941 Play Ball Ted Williams #14 PSA Mint 9 - None Higher. Ted Williams and the year 1941 will forever be linked in baseball lore. The year marks the season that the Hall of Fame slugger crested past the .400 mark for what would be the last time in the 20th Century by any Major League player. We would be remiss not to mention that Yankee legend Joe DiMaggio had a pretty good season as well. It was a time of great thrills on the field and the threat of doom off the field. For the Boston faithful, Williams was heaven sent. As John Updike described it, "The affair between Boston and Ted Williams has been no mere summer romance; it has been a marriage, composed of spats, mutual disappointments, and, toward the end, a mellowing hoard of shared memories.

    The 1941 Play Ball issue remains at the top of many collectors' favorite Williams card, picturing The Kid in warm pastel tones, throwing a deep purple shadow behind him. is also a card that has come to represent the era for cards as well. Few others are as recognizable and stir such passionate memories of the game and collecting.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. The offered card is one of nine graded MINT with none rated higher. This rom a total pop that teeters on 1,000 submissions. This high-grade representation offers flawless color and registration and incredibly light wear for a piece of such advanced age, even the centering is as precise as one could ever hope for. A stunning addition to any Ted Williams or vintage card assembly.
