PSA has never graded the 1955 Hocus Focus. Yes, it certainly exists, just not graded yet by PSA.

Dan---same photo was used in 55 and 56. Both sets are pretty grim, but in my experience by far the toughest issued ( as opposed to unissued test sets) Topps sets to complete. Another tough Topps quest would be to get all the colored line variants on his 1956 cards

Default Rare Ted Williams stuff

Here's the rare #68 card (Ted signs for 1959) in my set. Is this 4+ card panel unique ? Or, has anyone else seen an original uncut 1959 Fleer sheet (or partial sheet) ?





A bit of trivia here... in 1952, Ted took flight training at the Willow Grove Naval Air Base, which is only a 20-minute drive from my house.

Default Wanna play?

Here is a 1970 Ted Williams - Boston Red Sox, sillisculpt figure by Russ & Wallace Berrie. For those that may not be familiar with these, during the 1960's and 1970's, sillisculpt figures by the Berries and by Paula were quite popular - hundreds of different ones were produced. Although Ted Williams' name is not stated anywhere on this figure, surely it was intended to represent Ted Williams because of the "B" on the baseball cap and the number "9" on the back of the figure's shirt.

Shameless plug: I have a another example of this sillisculpt that I will be listing on eBay this weekend. Unfortunately, its bat has broken off and disappeared, but could be replaced with a similar size bat from a toy baseball figure.

Mind blown....had no idea there was a '55, never heard a peep about it.

Thanks for posting the pics!
