(LOT 37)
1955 Topps #2 Ted Williams PSA 9 MINT

MINT WILLIAMS!!! Ted Williams heroic stints in two World Wars as well as his arguable status as baseball's "greatest hitter ever" has earned "Teddy Ballgame" iconic stature second to none. This Boston Red Sox legend, via his myriad of unparalleled hitting achievements and fighter pilot war accomplishments, captivated a country and stands as the true embodiment of an American hero. It is no coincidence that the "Splendid Splinter" even managed to hit a home run in the last swing of his illustrious career; poetic justice at its best for baseball's greatest all-time hitter! The aforementioned accolades certainly attest to Ted's legacy, and it is this reason why a myriad of high-end vintage card collectors seek to attain his most valuable artifacts. One of his most popular baseball cards is the 1955 Topps #2 subject depicting two classic colorful lithographic-like poses of the iconic batter.

Synonymous with his supreme batting exploits, it just so happens this remarkable PSA Mint 9 Ted Williams offering currently shares the spotlight with eight other copies as the finest of its kind! The card itself depicts two sparkling Williams images (one portrait and one batting), with the flawless-like picture set against a brilliant yellow/white background. Atypical for this issue is the near-perfectly centered image, situated between four absolutely blinding white borders. Glistening surfaces, pinpoint corner tips, and a super clean verso complete this breathtaking marvel that's has defiantly withstood the test of time. On a pure hitting basis, Williams is generally accepted as the greatest hitter in our National Pastime's glorious history, justifying why this "best of the rest" PSA memento is the perfect testament for "Teddy Ballgame's" iconic legacy!
