Happy Birthday Ted Williams

During his playing days, Ted Williams told everyone his birthday was October 30, because he didn't want to be distracted by a birthday during the baseball season. Throughout his career, his birthday was even listed wrong on his baseball cards. But it's actually today, August 30. So happy birthday to Ted Williams, The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived!
Here's the back of my dad's 1954 Topps Ted Williams card, which he gave to me when I was a kid, and I still keep VERY safe.
