Graded 92 NM/MT+ 8.5 by SGC. Hall of Famer, in a Rookie Card appearance. This is one of just nine examples at its tier (with none graded higher) among a total of more than 325 copies recorded in SGC's census reporting. Presented is a superlative first card of the "Splendid Splinter." This collectible reminds the observer of the satisfaction to be found in capturing a top-quality relic of a great player's past, before he became a national treasure and sports icon. Other memorabilia pieces are available to recall Ted's earliest years, but no other baseball cards picture Ted in 1939. In the realm of card collecting, this one is it! Gum, Incorporated has given the hobby this lucid black-and-white recreation of Williams' sweet swing. Viewers are also treated to a clear view of his famous number "9," and even a glimpse of the centennial arm patch on his left sleeve. Ted Williams, a classic pose, a celebration of 100 years of baseball and a rookie bio cardback – here's a card that has it all, and every feature is presented at a splendid level of condition. This card puts forth a clean, pack-fresh appearance. The image is well-focused and displays amazing contrast. Immaculate white borders on every side are stunning in their brilliance, and are capped at each end by faultless corners. This magnificent Ted Williams rookie card will easily and immediately become the centerpiece of any collection into which it is introduced. Minimally Near Mint to Mint-plus condition.
