(LOT 44)
1954 Topps #1 Ted Williams PSA 8 NM-MT

PACK-FRESH THUMPER!!! Presented here is a PSA 8 NM-MT 1954 Topps #1 Williams subject that has only been bested by 12 examples, an incredible achievement considering the first card in any set would be subjected to serious damage including rubber band marks, edge wear, sunlight/fading, soiling or any simple surface defects as a result of the card sitting on the top of the pile. Ted Williams's ultimate dream of becoming our National Pastime's greatest all-time hitter truly became a reality since most baseball experts label the Thumper as the finest batter who ever graced a baseball diamond. Both of The Kid's classic images include the incomparable hitter holding his iconic bat, set against a vibrant orange and well-centered background. Additional pack-fresh features include square corners with miniscule wear, vivid resolution, and pack-fresh surfaces. When Teddy Ballgame returned from the Korean War for the 1954 campaign (the year this card was issued), he didn't waste any time in regaining his superior form, pacing the Junior Circuit in OPS via his spectacular 1.148 figure while also posting a .345 batting average. Indeed, the Splendid Splinter once again would capture the hearts of so many Beantown fans via his unparalleled hitting exploits!
