Wow, Dave, those Teds are awesome! I wish I had more of his cards. I loved the write up too. Seems like a good guy did a good deed and they just wanted to show their appreciation. Well done all around!

Great story-telling, David. I am so happy for you. As someone said, they rewarded you with the pair of Ted Williams gems because they are your friends, and you helped with a difficult, and an emotionally straining project that had to be done. I'm rejoicing with you!!!!!

Thanks for sharing with us.

It was well worth it.

My friendship with the both of them grew.
I got to know their father box by box
And I got to take part in the unearthing of the coolest collection I have ever seen.

I've never been good at accepting gifts, and I always felt as though accepting something for doing a good deed cancels out the good deed.

Yesterday we were invited to a picnic at one of the Twins house... while I apparently wasn't looking they gave these cards to my wife and suggested that she give them to me tommorrow... came home to find a 40&41 play ball on my countertop... Both cards were part of their dads collection and among a grouping that were freshly graded... They will keep my 39 play ball company for years to come...

Thoughtful, unnecessary, and appreciated...
Great story!

Thanks for sharing.

One of my favorite baseball cards of all-time.
And a tremendous childhood memory maker.

It's been a week since I took a look here. I just LOVE what I see.

The Ted Williams cards with the story attached feels like what collecting is all about. Yeah, some guys make money off cardboard also, but what separates cards from gold or pork belly futures are the memories. So many of our cards tell stories, whether of the player's real or embellished feats from our youth, of the quirky way we acquired the card, or--maybe these days--the thrill of getting back a particular grade. Add a 1954 Bowman to those three Teds and you can retire from Williams collecting--what a great grouping!

The Koosman was really a beautiful card as well. Would look nice next to a 1969 Nolan Ryan. I love the color in both. And for that matter, why not throw in a 1968 Ryan/Koosman!

But what really made me happy was seeing the George Foster RC posted above. Whatever the final stat lines and Cooperstown voting were, there were no bigger giants on the diamond when I was a kid than George Foster, Steve Garvey, and Dave Parker. That none of the three made the Hall does little to diminish the memories.

I've been in a cardboard drought since nabbing the 1936 Hartnett, but I was thrilled to add this Hank Aaron "rookie" bobblehead to my Hank display. This was released only this past week to Braves "A-List" season ticket holders only, with a total of 1512 produced.

Still hoping to post actual cardboard again soon, but my want list is pretty much down to Ruth/Gehrig, which makes it really tough!

That's so bizarre seeing Koos wearing number 47 and not his renown number 36.

Nice card... Think mine can land a 9 like yours? It's in my stack to send to PSA.
