Ted William final career at-bat is HR photo...



Item # 674053

September 29, 1960

THE SALINA JOURNAL, Kansas, Sept. 29, 1960

* Ted Williams very last career at-bat
* 521st & final home run hit photo
* Boston Red Sox baseball legend


The top of the front page has a three column photo showing Ted Williams belting out a home run in his very last career at-bat with small heading: "Farewell Blast". This was known at the time as: "Ted Williams bids adieu to Boston Fans with 521st home run" He actually has three away games left in the season but chose to sit out those games. Did he sit out because he wanted his last at-bat to be a home run ? Amazing this publication put this somewhat famous photo on the front page.
Complete with 24 pages, a few small binding holes along the spine/1st column, otherwise nice.
