Exceptional official program from Ted Williams' final pro game on September 28, 1960.  Though Boston would play three more games in 1960 at Yankee Stadium, Williams' season ended at Fenway, in remarkable fashion - his final major league hit was an 8th inning home run to center off Baltimore pitcher Jack Fischer.  Boston would come back in the bottom of the 9th, scoring two runs on a fielders' choice and an error.  The scorecard appears in strong condition, scored carefully in black ink, some general wear evident at the edges and corners, along with signs of long-ago rolling that has been flattened with time.  An exceptional memento from the final game of one of baseball's greatest ever.
