Ted had strong opinions about what made for a great hitter, and it involved hitting for a combination of average and power. Had he been willing to sacrifice power for batting average, one suspects, he could have ranked right at the top instead of just fifth among “modern era” players. Had he been willing to sacrifice average and just swing for the fences, he would have hit more than 521 home runs. As a young man, he knew what he wanted. At age 20, he said, “All I want out of life is that when I walk down the street folks will say, ‘There goes the greatest hitter that ever lived.’” In a conversation late in life, when someone asked whether he thought he’d accomplished that, he simply said he didn’t know but that it was a great honor just to hear his name in the same sentence as a Ruth or a Gehrig. Featured here is an attractive and altogether impressive offering of Ted's from the ever-popular 1941 Play Ball release. Graded as a NM/MT 8 by PSA the offered keepsake provides abundant original color as well as four top flight NM/MT corners. A well centered image also commands the enthusiasts attention while the reverse is splendidly printed with nary an issue. A terrific example offered at the top end of the grade!
