What is a Ted Williams signed 30 30 Winchester worth with the box?

Wow!!! How so envious I am. I have no idea what that might be "worth" as far as auction value. I have an original Hillerich and Bradsby Louisville Slugger bat signed in blue sharpie (Green Diamond authenticated) by the Splendid Splinter himself, and that's worth around $2,000 give or take. Man, being a huge Red Sox/Ted Williams fan, AND a huge Winchester fan, that would be a crown jewel nominee for my collection!!! Congrats on such an awesome piece. There was no Ted Williams commermorative model 94 although Sears did sell a line of Ted Williams marked guns in the 50's and 60's, made by Winchester or Marlin, depending on who gave Sears the best deal. The Sears marked Winchesters tend to have a lower value than the Winchester marked equivalents. If you have a rifle that is signed by Ted Williams then the above answer stands. There are Ted Williams collectors out there who would pay whatever the market bears for the piece. The value is not established and strictly negotiable.
