"Why did Sears sign Ted Williams?" asked a 1962 Sports Illustrated article. "For one simple reason. To add a cold, professional viewpoint on the quality of every piece of Sears sports equipment before it gets into the Sears catalog or any one of the 740 Sears department stores. Williams is a working consultant. He helps Sears select the sports items it sells. He personally field-tests them. And he suggests improvements in order to keep Sears a stride ahead in the sporting goods field...If the legendary Williams batting eye can't detect a flaw, Sears knows the item is absolutely first-rate."
