Rare 1972 Ted Williams Washington Senators Game Issued/Worn Jersey, Signed Twice, Full JSA LOA

In late 1971, prior to the Senators fleeing to Texas, jersey maker Wilson was preparing to introduce the first knit uniforms to the Washington franchise, and produced only a handful in preparation for a 1972 Senators season which ultimately went south - literally. This rare jersey is one of only four known to exist, and worn in photo-ops and publicity to generate season tickets sales: one was made for then-President Richard Nixon, VP Spiro Agnew, All-Star slugger Frank Thomas, and this one... for manager Ted Williams, who served the club from 1969-1971, and then as the Rangers inaugural season manager in '72. This is undoubtedly the rarest of all Williams post-career jerseys.

The beautiful spartan white knit shell features scripted “Senators” sewn across chest in solid red single-tackle twill, with the correct “Wilson [size] 46” tag sewn in collar and white "(19)72" strip tag sewn below. Back displays arched “WILLIAMS” sewn across shoulders, again in solid red, and Williams' number “9” sewn below in same format.

The Hall of Famer signed both back and front, directly below the scripted underscore on front, and again on back, below the "9". This utterly unique piece of Williams, Senators and Rangers history includes a full photo-LOA from Jame Spence, JSA cert number Y38142.
