SWANZEY, N.H. (AP) - Ted Williams' fishing license and personal notes on local fishing holes have been swiped during an auction preview in New Hampshire.
Auctioneer John Pappas tells the New Hampshire Sunday News the
stolen items had drawn strong interest and could have fetched $1,000 or more at Saturday's auction. The 1970 license for "Theodore Williams" was in a small holder attached to a fishing cap, and the notes were tucked inside. The items were taken from the Knotty Pine Auction Service last week.
Saturday's auction was the second time the auction service has sold items for Williams' third wife, Dolores Wettach Williams. The model and actress was married to the Boston Red Sox hall of famer from 1967 to 1973. The items come from their Vermont home.
