Document signed: "Ted Williams", "John Henry Williams", "Brian Interland", "Jerry Brenner", 1 page, 8½x11. Florida, 1991 May 5. Notarized. Ted Williams grants permission to the three co-signers, doing business as Grand Slam Marketing, to use his name and likeness on a T-shirt and hat on the 50th anniversary of his .400 season. TED WILLIAMS (1918-2002) played outfield for the Boston Red Sox from 1939-1960, taking off time to fight in World War II and Korea. Combining keen vision with quick wrists and a scientific approach to hitting, he was the last to hit over .400 (.406 in 1941), leading the American League in hitting six times. His lifetime batting average is .344 with 521 home runs. The Splendid Splinter's accomplishments include two Triple Crowns, two MVPs, six American League batting championships and 18 All-Star Game selections. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1966. JOHN HENRY WILLIAMS (1968-2004), Ted Williams' only son, actively involved in sports and internet marketing, faced frequent lawsuits and bankruptcy proceedings. Reversing the usual career progression, he entered minor league baseball at age 33 (in 2002), but had little success. After Ted's death, John Henry produced a controversial document expressing his father's wish to be kept in cryogenic suspension, on the chance that future medical advances would permit resuscitation. (The will was contested by family members, and its authenticity questioned by sports writer Leigh Montville, but the courts upheld its legality. John Henry now resides near his father in a cryogenic chamber in Scottsdale, Arizona. BRIAN INTERLAND and JERRY BRENNER, John Henry Williams' partners at Grand Slam Marketing and other ventures, remain active in Jerry Brenner Promotions, a private fund-raising service based in Brookline, Massachusetts. Top edge slightly frayed. Slightly creased at top right corner. Slightly soiled at top right corner. Fine condition.
