THIS SALE IS FOR A NEAR MINT PACKAGE OF CHAMP PROPHYLACTICS ALSO KNOWN BY SPORTS MEMORABILIA COLLECTORS AS " TED WILLIAMS CONDOMS " THAT WERE MADE BY THE NATIONAL HYGENIC PRODUCTS CORPORATION IN THE EARLY 1950'S.
THIS VERY RARE AND UNUSUAL SPORTS COLLECTIBLE IS A FACTORY SEALED PACKAGE CONTAINING 3 CHAMP CONDOMS AND FEATURING AN UNAUTHORIZED IMAGE OF THE GREAT TED WILLIAMS ON THE PACKAGE THAT WAS ACTUALLY STOLEN FROM HIS 1954 TOPPS # 250 BASEBALL CARD.
TED WILLIAMS DIDN'T KNOW OF THE USAGE OF HIS IMAGE AND DIDN'T RECEIVE ANY ROYALTIES FOR IT'S USE.
BACK IN THE 1950'S CONDOMS WERE NOT AS OUT IN THE OPEN AND ADVERTISED AS TODAY SO SOMETHING LIKE THIS WAS ON THE SCANDELOUS SIDE ESPECIALLY WITH TED'S STRONG CATHOLIC FAN BASE.
TED WILLIAMS DID EVENTUALLY FILE A LAWSUIT TO STOP PRODUCTION.
THIS PACKAGE IS SEALED IN IT'S ORIGINAL SHRINK WRAP AND IN NEAR MINT CONDITION. THE ONLY DEFECT IS ON THE UPPER AND LOWER EDGES HAS HAD A THE PLASTIC AND THE SURFACE PAPER UNDER IT PULLED- VERY MINOR AND DOES NOT AFFECT THE DISPLAYING OF IT.
