Default Best of the Splendid Splinter

A question on Ted Williams: what do people here think is his best card? Normally the rookie gets pride of place, but the 1939 Play Ball is not the most beloved set by most, and so it's not surprising that his rookie card doesn't command the same premium compared to his other cards that cards like Mays' 1951 Bowman or Aaron's 1954 Topps do. So what do people think is actually his best card? I'd go for either the 1941 Play Ball (especially since it's the .406 year), or the 1949 Leaf. Thoughts?

Since I am a mainly a pre war collector, I still like his rookie.

Simple sepia 1940 Play Ball of a young splinter

It's still so mind boggling to think of the career numbers he may have put up if he had those (3) prime years (ages 23-26) and basically two other full seasons (age 33 and 34) to play. Even with those missing years Teddy Ballgame still put up some incredible numbers.

1955 has always been my favorite card



But I also like some of the 1959 Fleer cards too



This 1957 TI doesn't suck, either

I like a lot of Ted's cards, and most of those mentioned. I also like the 1957 Topps of older Ted.

I'm still in the camp that likes his rookie the best. Great pic and I love the black and white.

If I had to pick a #2 it would likely be 50 or 51 Bowman. One can only dream of what his 52 Bowman would have looked like (that is my favorite post-war design).

I think that I would have to go with his 1939 R303-A Goudey Rookie. This is my favorite image of him and it is incredibly rare. Plus, it is a Goudey. How cool is that? This is not mine, but I wish that it was.

Williams is one that has many awesome cards to choose from. There are many I like, but his '51 Bowman is my only card.

Mostly a post-war collector, so I'm lobbying for the 1955 or 1957 Topps issues, as pictured above.

It's much easier for me to pick his WORST card. For me, that's his 1958T.

My favorite would be the 1939 PB.

Even without the years in the military, his numbers are actually better than people realize. Sacrifice flies aren't counted as at-bats - except that they were between 1931-1954. So, under the rules that Cobb and Hornsby hit .400 with, Ted Williams' average in 1941 would have been something like .419. His career .344 is actually probably at least .350 in comparison to Cobb's .366 and Hornsby's .358.

1. 1939 Play Ball
2. 1939 Goudey
3. 1954 Wilson Franks

Then a big Gap, and a bunch of others in a tie for 4th

As much as I love the Wilson's, 54B and 57T, the 55T has to come out on top. Iconic headshot, iconic batting pose combined with iconic penmanship. It lacks nothing.

Actually, his M.P. & Co. cards probably ring out the WORST the best.

And if you want some humor without involving a flying package of hot dogs, it is tough to top this 1959 Fleer of Ted.

The changes around the sacrifice fly rules make for an interesting discussion. Thank you for bringing them up.

SABR published an article on the subject in 2021. In the article, it states that "In 1941, Ted Williams batted a lusty .406 (185 H in 456 AB), but had his eight RBI flyouts not been counted as at-bats, his batting average would have been .413."

It also states that "Twice the no Sac-Fly rule precluded a player from winning the esteemed Triple Crown of batting."

The first was Jimmie Foxx, who could have won the batting crown and therefore the triple crown in 1932 if the the sacrifice fly rule that has been in operation from 1954 to the present (where batters who hit RBI flyouts are credited with a sac fly, and an RBI flyout is not charged as an at bat, just as a sacrifice bunt is not charged as an at-bat) were in effect. This would have given Foxx back-to-back triple crowns.

Similarly, Ted Williams could have won the batting title in 1949, which would have given Ted his 3rd Triple Crown.

I'm a stickler when it comes to condition in my collection. Rarity is always a secondary factor. I had to compromise though on condition when i found this 1 of 1 (that means rare) 1955 Topps Williams with a unique Preston Ward border.

Finding a splintered Splendid Splinter made my day and led to the creation of my complete 1955 Topps Mutant Set.

Been in the market for a well-centered 1939 PB for years -- have never been lucky enough to win the right one. In the meantime, this holds the spot in my collection . . .

Not to mention that, by current standards, he would have qualified for, and won, the 1954 batting title too. Here's my copy of what I now think is my favorite Ted (I'm a color and registration guy, less so a centering guy):

Just aesthetically, I'd go with '56 Topps. Overall, I'd have to say it's the 1939 R303A.

I have owned most of the Ted cards including one of the highest graded 59 Fleer sets. Man does he have a lot of ugly cards.

I had 8 different cut card art pieces made and wanted a Ted one. I just couldn't figure out what card I wanted to turn into a piece of artwork. I went with a wrapper from the 59 Fleer set.

The '41 is to me the important one, .406. The '41 DiMaggio likewise. Two almost vitally important cards. Yours is a "Splendid" example!

Here is my Ted PC with all but the recent pickups.

My favorite are his 48 Leaf and 54 Wilson Franks.

Not really rare. Tougher than any other card in the set sure but it being classified as rare, no way.

Im honestly a fan of the 1939 play ball Rc, but a close second would have to be the 1954 topps #250 for me, thats classic Ted all the way.
