In a season-long symphony that hasn’t been matched since, Ted Williams was the model of consistency in 1941, posting the last batting average to eclipse the mythical .400 plateau. Reaching the mark on May 25, Williams dipped below .400 for 13 days following the All-Star break, but reached .400 again on July 25 and never looked back. Encapsulated and Graded GOOD 2 by PSA, this ticket stub was issued at Shibe Park for the June 29 doubleheader between the Athletics and Red Sox. For the afternoon, Williams drilled career home run No. 69 and, despite an 0-for-4 showing in the nightcap, remained at .404. One of two examples at its tier with none graded higher, the crisp voucher features printed seating and date details, as well as the facsimile signature of Athletics President Connie Mack. Coincidentally, it was at this venue that the Red Sox closed the 1941 season. With Williams at .400 entering play, he was urged to sit out and preserve his mark. Williams would not hear of it, however, and went 6-for-8 on the day to close the campaign at .406!
