          Quite possibly the coolest man who ever lived.

          I've always loved the one with the DiMaggio brothers. His affection and respect for them both really shines through in that image.

                  Ted Williams:---Ted Williams on video


                  Looks like Roy Campanella behind the plate, might be an All-Star Game.


                  Looks likeYogi behind the plate. Both Ted/Yogi made all the All-Star teams, 1949 - 1956, except, 1952 (Ted in military).
                  Anyone recognize the ballpark?

                      Here's a super-rare Polaroid photo of Ted taken by Casey Stengel himself in October 1959. What Casey wrote on the back is priceless!

                          Yeah, it's a classic. I love how Casey writes just like he talks...too funny.

                            Ha!! That's great! I can't believe he wrote like that too! Man, it's just crazy how that man's mind worked!

                              Ted Williams & Jim Thorpe
                              This very rare picture is signed by Ted for Jim Thorpe personally. Not sure of the year...but Jim passed on in 1953. So, late 40's-early 50's. Maybe I'll take the time to correct all the rips etc. and re-post it. For now though, here it is.
