Ted Williams, San Diego Padres

Recently there was controversy over a new card showing Babe Ruth in an Atlanta Braves card, when there was never a major league team in Atlanta in his career. Any chance of a controversy over this old card featuring Ted Williams as a San Diego Padre? There was no major league team in San Diego during his career.

However, this is actually an accurate card. The San Diego Padres were a minor league team that Williams played for before joining the Red Sox in 1939. While not controversial, this is a cool card of a familiar player in an unfamiliar uniform.

  1. Padres won the Pacific Coast League with Williams right out of high school.
