Ted Williams & Bill Terry Signed Baseball – COA JSAGo Back
Presented is a rare piece of baseball history. It’s a baseball autographed by the last two .400 hitters – Bill Terry and Ted Williams. Bill Terry hit .401 for the New York Giants in 1930 and Ted Williams hit .406 for the Boston Red Sox in 1941. No player has averaged over .400 for an entire season since.
The autographs of Terry and Williams are on an ONL (Feeney) baseball on the sweet spot. Both signed it in blue ballpoint pen (“8-9”). The ball itself shows heavy toning on the top/bottom panel.
Authentication: JSA Full Letter
This ball is from one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of autographed baseballs in the world. Altogether they were easily displayable in custom shelf form and alphabetically displayed nonetheless. The choice of medium was visually easy for the encyclopedic collector who put these together. It took several decades to amass these rare autographs of the most prominent entertainers, historical figures, and sports players. It proved quite difficult to acquire autographs of non-ballplayers on such an odd object (a baseball) but diligence proved otherwise and that it’s possible. So, now with the collection complete and his shelves empty there’s only one thing left to do….bid on this item and start the challenge to see how far you can take it.
