A Ticket, Essay and Portfolio Honoring Ted Williams.

Lot 271. A Ticket, Essay and Portfolio Honoring Ted Williams. Widely regarded as one of the 10 best baseball players of the 20th century, Williams passed away July 5, 2002 at the age of 83. Seventeen days later, fans celebrated his life and career with “A Celebration of An American Hero” at Fenway Park. A laminated ticket for the event is nm-m; his photo is on the front and back of the ticket; on the back, he is characterized as “The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived.” The ticket is accompanied by a thick-paper 12” x 15” portfolio, or folder, that has his photo on the front cover and his career record on the back. The portfolio is vg+ to ex with creases on the two bottom corners on the front cover. Inside is an eight-page 12” x 15” publication that has damage to the lower outside corner of each page and otherwise is vg-ex. It presents John Updike’s essay “Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu,” which was inspired by Williams’ home run in his last Major League at-bat. Originally published in the Oct. 22, 1960 issue of “The New Yorker” magazine, the essay is accompanied by 12 photos of the last Major League player to bat .400 or higher – 80 years ago this year. Winning Bid $20.
