The last player to eclipse the .400 batting average plateau, Ted Williams did so in 1941 and yet, was second in the MVP balloting. He proceeded to win Triple Crown laurels in both 1942 and 1947 – and was denied MVP status both times. Nearly 80 years later, we all know who the real MVP was and celebrate his feats with (2) keepsakes decorated with bold Williams autographs. Includes:
Signed Bat: turned by Hillerich & Bradsby to the dimensions of the “W215” white ash weapons brandished by Williams during his prolific career, this 35” signature model example is signed by Williams in blue marker (“8-9” strength) between the center brand and barrel stampings. Accompanying is a full photo LOA from JSA.
Signed Baseball: a lightly toned OAL Brown ball (grade “6-7”) signed on the sweet spot in blue ballpoint (“9” strength). Accompanying is a full photo LOA from PSA/DNA.
