Flashback Product of the Week: 1993 The Ted Williams Card Company Premiere Edition

The year was 1993 and The Hobby was at the pinnacle of overproduction.  Athletes of the past were cashing in on their fame, so it only seemed natural that Ted Williams would have his own card company.  Williams was a smart guy and knew what he was worth well before many other players did.  Although it sounded like a good idea, The Ted Williams Card Company wasn’t successful.  After being around for a few years it folded.  Many cards in this set are filled with errors, most likely because they were rushed into production.  These cards also have little demand and/or value.

  1. Real pity they didn’t last as the cards looked really nice and had a cool selection of players with great photos.

  2. If only they take time not to rush things. They would still be here giving new cards to collect and cherish. And if they take time for it and put emphasis on it’s quality one card might have a high value now.

  3. I have a 1994 Brett Favre autograph card by the Ted Williams co. #82 and I have no idea on the value of this card. Any idea?
