This last card from the 1954 Topps set features Red Sox great Ted Williams. Williams was also featured on the first card in the 1954 set, and interestingly this was the only pre-1975 Topps set to dedicate bookend issues to the same player.
Although injured in spring training, Williams still enjoyed an excellent campaign in 1954. He was named to his eleventh All Star team and finished second in the league in home runs. And although he didn't have enough plate appearances (only 386) to officially qualify, he did lead the league in on-base percentage, slugging percentage, and finished second in batting average.
The offered example is a real stunner. Graded MINT 9 by PSA, this card is as bright and fresh as the day it rolled off the printing press. The borders are pure snow-white, the corners are pinpoint sharp, the color is amazingly bold and vibrant, and the glossy finish sparkles with brilliance.
