Typically, most hobbyists view the widely offered 1939 Play Ball subject as the Ted Williams rookie card. What is often neglected is the fact that the prestigious Goudey Gum Co. also issued a 1939 Ted Williams subject in their eclectic 48 subject set. Dubbed “R303-A’s”, these 4” x 6-3/16” obscurities included an almost identical “Splendid Splinter” sepia-toned batting pose on their 1939 Ted Williams subject that easily resides as the much rarer of the two Williams rookie card options. With that in mind, presented here is one of those seldom surfacing R303-A Goudey Ted Williams rookies in a superb PSA VG-EX 4 holder. To date, PSA has only handled two other specimens, with this “1 of 1” heirloom only bested by a SOLE example! The SGC census report only lists a meager 5 encapsulated copies, an irrefutable testament to this incredibly rare Ted Williams Goudey rookie card versus its mainstream Play Ball peer.
