Guide for collectors of Ted Williams Collectibles and Memorabilia

Memorabilia that was once signed, owned or used by Ted Williams when he played for the Boston Red Sox (from 1939 to 1942 and 1946 to 1960) is considered to be the most valuable among collectors. Memorabilia that was once signed by Williams drives up the value of the item as well.

Only 270 serigraphs of Ted Williams which were issued in 1991 and created by sports artist Leroy Neiman exist, thus are considered to be rare.

Restoration of a helmet, uniform, jersey, document, serigraph, baseball card, baseball bat, or baseball is not recommended.
