1971 Ted Williams Game-Worn, Signed Rangers Jersey

The “Splendid Splinter” was the greatest hitter of his age. But just as he played on many a marginal Red Sox club, so too did he endure the frustration of managing others – specifically the latter-day Washington Senators/Texas Rangers. In his tenure as dugout commander for the Rangers, he wore this offered flannel jersey. A positively magnificent piece it is, beautiful and majestic in its [size] “48” splendor with mountainous extra length. Its expanse of pristine lightweight gray cotton provides the ideal backdrop for one of baseball’s most captivating jersey fronts. “Rangers” is sewn on in two-color drop shadow tackle twill in a wildly creative “Barnum & Bailey” font style. It has a chenille stitched ‘lone star’ affixed to the base of the “R” and the upper case first and last letters (“R” and “S”) symbolize the franchise owner, Robert Shorts. All of the buttons are intact, enhancing the appeal of this garment. Particularly intriguing, however, is that this jersey once held the “Senators” script logo. It was removed with utmost diligence as absolutely no holes were generated in the process, and the erstwhile presence of that logo is confirmed only under photographic light. In a word, this jersey bridges that hastily effected migration of the Senators to Texas. All of these considerations, in conjunction with the chain link tail identifiers (“1971 – Set 1”), a positively “10” Ted Williams autograph, and a Wilson [size] “48” label in the collar, are tantamount to a museum-worthy piece. The reverse also has an interesting story. When the Senators moved, the inaugural-season Rangers left the uniform numbers on their jerseys. Resulting, then, was a number on the reverse highlighted by midnight blue (a la Senators), but the logo on the front was accentuated by Ranger-style royal blue. This jersey has a slight stain on the lower back which doesn’t detract from the overall appearance. So busy and full of features, yet so simplistic in its beauty is this Teddy Ballgame relic.
