1954 Wilson Franks Ted Williams SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $2,500.00 , Sold For - $15,275.00

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Only three graded at this level with only two higher (one NM-MT 86 and one NM-MT+ 92). Magnificent extremely high-grade example 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. In fact, the Wilson Franks card of Williams may be the single most valuable (per condition) and prized of all Ted Williams cards. Crisp and clean, with a perfectly focused image, four razor sharp corners, bright colors, and a flawless reverse. This is an exceptionally attractive high-grade example, one of the finest examples in the collecting world, of one of Ted Williams' most classic and rarest cards, from this extremely popular 1950s food issue. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000. SOLD FOR $15,275.00
