    Description

    Signed 1939 Play Ball Ted Williams #92 PSA VG 3, Auto 10. He entered the Majors intent upon a future in which baseball fans would point at him and whisper, "There goes the greatest hitter that ever lived." Twenty-one years later, he would retire with that wish fulfilled. It's a fact that makes the presented cardboard commemorative one of the most essential trading cards in the hobby, deriving from the most important issue released during the historic Baseball Centennial season.

    Arguably there is no more significant vintage in the entirety of a century and a half of professional baseball history, a year that saw the debut of Williams, the tearful farewell of Gehrig, and the ribbon-cutting of the Hall of Fame. We can see the Centennial patch on The Kid's left sleeve, and the number "9" he'd retire from the BoSox wardrobe on his back. Below, we encounter a flawless example of his autograph, one of the prettiest in the hobby. This is just the second autographed example of this key rookie that we've had the privilege to present to the collecting community. Graded PSA VG 3 with an Auto 10 signature.

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