Joe Stosh Stoshack has an incredible ability. He can travel through time using baseball cards. But the FBI has learned of his talent, and now they have a mission for him: go back to 1941 and warn President Roosevelt about the attack on Pearl Harbor!
Stosh is reluctant, until he finds out that his ticket to 1941 is a Ted Williams card. Williams was one of the greatest hitters of all time, even though he lost years of his career to serve in the Marines. How many more home runs would the Splendid Splinter have hit if he had those years back? What if Stosh can prevent the attack on Pearl Harbor and convince Williams not to serve in the military?
With black-and-white photographs and stats throughout, plus back matter separating fact from fiction, Ted & Me is the perfect mix of history and action for every young baseball fan.

Throughout the s and s, collectors faced a series of unusual challenges in trying to add a Ted Williams baseball card to their collections. In fact, Williams had been back in the Sawx lineup for a couple of years before his next major issue hit store shelves, courtesy of the Leaf set. Beginning the next season and running through , Ted was a major calling card for the Bowman Gum Company as they dispatched Leaf to the hobby history bin and took control of the burgeoning gum card market. At the same time, Bowman was trying to bail the water out of their sinking dingy, and to help in that effort they plopped down a smiling Williams on card 66 in their own set. Stories vary about what happened next, but two prevailing theories have emerged about why that beauty was pulled early in the print run and replaced with Red Sox teammate Jimmy Piersall. One idea held that the printing plate on which Williams appeared was somehow broken and that, rather than scramble to create a replacement, Bowman instead replaced Teddy Ballgame himself.
