Among the very elite of its kind in the hobby is this 1939 Play Ball rendering of Ted Williams. The aspiring youngster was assigned berth #92 in the issue, and the narrative on the card’s reverse benignly reports that Ted “…has a great future according to experts.” Of course, this was a cookie-cutter accolade as similar praise has always been routinely afforded the most marginal of rookies. Had those ‘experts’ peered into a better-polished crystal ball, the text on this card would declare that “Williams brings to the plate a devastating compound of rarely-witnessed power, and an eye for the ball hitherto never known in the human specie.” At the conclusion of his glorious career, the mighty slugger had registered a .344 average; the mere contact hitter had belted 521 home runs.

And so, Ted Williams was introduced to the public in 1939, destined for a glory that would include two Triple Crowns … along with otherwise towering career numbers, despite two major interruptions for the serious business of military combat. Here, then, projects the image of that 20-year-old Ted Williams – on his rookie card, one that has endured the ages to remain in nearly pristine condition. As is evidenced in our photo, this particular card has been reviewed by Global, and that authority has awarded its condition trong>92 NM-MT 8. Critically, we report a very slightly imperfect upper right corner – yet certainly within the guidelines of its grade. Perhaps most functional in the card’s determination is its centeredness which is about 60/40. Otherwise, this card is above reproach – perfectly clean surfaces, front and back, and impeccable borders around. Indeed, fully worthy of its lofty grade, Near Mint to Mint.
