Like so many greats who tried their hands at managing, Ted Williams was ultimately disappointed, as his players failed to live up to the unreachable standards that he had realized, himself. While he may not have approved of many of his players’ efforts, Williams heartily endorsed this detailed sketch. Framed to dimensions of 12-1/4 x 16-1/4” under red-on-black matting, this graphite pencil rendition portrays Williams in his Washington Senators apparel, casting a glance of apparent dismay. Executed in silver marker, Williams’ bold autograph blends with the grayish tones on his jacket, yet still projects (“8-9”) strength and clarity upon close examination. The artist is unknown, though the piece is dated “84.” Full photo LOA from JSA.
