Description

While a New York bias saw the Baseball Writers Association of America select Yankee second baseman Joe Gordon over Triple Crown winner Ted Williams for MVP honors in 1942, the offered American League season pass had equal value at all eight Junior Circuit venues. Encapsulated and Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA, this 4-1/4 x 2-11/16” voucher reads “Annual Pass to All Grounds” with “1942” in gold-colored numerals and the facsimile signature of league president William Harridge. One of two at its tier with only two graded higher, this rare survivor is a wartime reminder of Williams’ career-long disdain for the baseball scribes. The Splendid Splinter was also the runner-up (to a Yankee player) in MVP balloting in both 1941 (despite a .406 batting average) and in 1947 (despite another Triple Crown).
