Joe DiMaggio had a remarkable season in 1941, with his famous 56-game hitting streak being a big part of the reason he batted .357 that year. Though he finished second to "Joltin' Joe" in MVP voting, Ted Williams arguably had the better year, as he alluded to by the inscription he added to the autograph seen on the offered single-signed baseball. DiMaggio turned in another impressive stat in '41, with a .440 OBP. In comparison, Williams .553 OBP that same season is absolutely astonishing, and he did it without laboratory created enhancements. In fact, the only science "Teddy Ballgame" used, was the study of how to hit a round ball with a round bat, squarely. Square up your bidding game, to score this desirable ("9") strength autograph, which resides on the sweet spot of an OAL/Brown ball (NM). Williams (d.2002) has included the inscription "406 - 1941" on the ball's east panel, citing his batting average for his incredible 1941 campaign, which is remembered as the last .400 season in Major League history. Auction LOA from JSA.
