Lot #16: 1939 Play Ball #92 Ted Williams Rookie Card – PSA NM-MT 8


     Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Hall of Famer, in his debut appearance. Among more than 850 copies recorded in PSA’s census reporting, just a dozen examples have been placed at a higher, unqualified tier. Williams' first Play Ball card pictures the very young Boston outfielder in a classic batting pose, as he will forever be warmly remembered. Offered is a high-grade specimen of the Red Sox star's scarce and sensitive rookie card. This example features clean white borders that frame a flawless black-and-white image, which is in turn noteworthy for its precision of focus. All four corners come to credible points, and the edge cuts are crisp, reflecting virtually no evidence of handling. The item's reverse (posting the great ballplayer's name at the top in a proper series of upper-case letters) delivers exceptionally bold resolution. Here is a Ted Williams rookie card that evinces top quality in every aspect. Near Mint to Mint condition.
