Ted Williams enjoyed promoting and drinking Moxie Root Beer products during the 1950s and ‘60s. The Red Sox great certainly helped move units off store shelves and into homes across greater New England. This lot features four empty bottles of Ted’s branded products from the Moxie Company of Boston. Two larger, “1 PINT” (16-ounce) bottles of Moxie Root Beer are shown with labels that have taken a beating over time but still tout Ted and his famous words: "IT'S MY FAVORITE!” The other two bottles (one clear and one sporting green glass) are from Moxie’s Ted’s Creamy Root Beer campaign. The powerful gold script spelling of “Ted’s Delicious Creamy Root Beer” on the bottlenecks is one selling point, but the colorful illustration of a grinning Ted Williams in uniform drives it home for Sox fans.
