Default Ted Williams spin cast rod

A few years ago a co-worker brought in a Ted Williams spin cast rod, he gave it the other guy in the office as he had some fish mounts and replica vintage fishing signs hung up. Unfortunately the reel is missing. He never really wanted it so it sat in the closet. We're now moving offices so I brought it home. I thought it was pretty cool. I'll hang it on the wall with my mounts.

it would look good on a wall at a fish camp, I don't currently have one of those

now if you happen to have a Ted Williams bat or signed ball I would have a place to display those

Cool!
My uncle has Ted Williams .22 rifle and I have a .22 that is almost identical to it but is a JC Higgins Model 36. Also know a guy that has a Ted Williams .270.

I have a Ted Williams 22 and it shoots great, very accurate. I've put 1000's of rounds through it.
