Description



His relationship with the press less than amicable, Ted Williams often shunned reporters (and the reverse was true, as well), but never stopped hitting. There were feats, however, for which the Hall of Famer simply could not be ignored. His 1955 season was no exception. Showing that a second lengthy military absence had no ill effects, the 36-year-old San Diego native hit a robust .356 and garnered front cover accolades on the August 1 Sports Illustrated. Encapsulated and Graded Near Mint- 9.2, this example is one of just two at its tier with only nine graded higher. This coveted peridical ranks #13 on the "Hardest to Find" list.
