The Ted Williams celebrity doll is a GI Joe made by Hasbro in 1999 as part of their GI Joe Classics Edition. The doll is titled Ted Williams Korean War Fighter Pilot.
While Williams is mostly known for baseball as a prolific hitter and outfielder for the Boston Red Sox in the 1950’s, this doll commemorates the 5 seasons he left baseball to serve in World War II and the Korean conflict as a Marine Corps pilot. The Ted Williams doll is fully decked out as fighter pilot but comes with a baseball bat and ball as a nod to “The Kid’s” .406 season batting average.
Ted Williams played his last game on September 28,1960 and died at the age of 83 in 2002.
