1954 Wilson Franks Ted Williams

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $3,300

Extremely attractive example of Ted Williams, the key card from the very popular Wilson Franks set. The Wilson Franks set is highly prized by collectors as one of the most attractive and desirable of all 1950s regional issues. In an era dominated by bubble-gum card sets featuring hundreds of players, the distinctive and beautifully designed Wilson Franks, with only twenty cards, each featuring a package of hot dogs in the background, stands out. The Ted Williams card from this set is all the more significant, not just as the the key star in the set, but as one of the most sought-after of all Ted Williams cards. Encapsulated as Authentic by PSA (submitted by REA) due to an irregular cut along the right edge, the card is crisp and clean, with a well-focused image, bright colors, and even wear at the corners. Boldly printed reverse, with faint traces of scattered staining. This is an outstanding opportunity to acquire a very attractive example of this classic card at a fraction of the cost of a numerically graded example while sacrificing virtually nothing in the way of appearance! Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $3,300
