Sears & Roebuck Ted Williams Weights

QUICK: who sold more weight sets than anyone? It wasn’t Milo, York or any other barbell company that probably immediately springs to mind, it was Ted Williams, by way of Sears & Roebuck stores. This is not surprising when you think about it, these weights had nationwide distribution through Sears stores, something which no other barbell company ever had.

Millions of young trainees with dreams of becoming Mr. America, found a 110 pound Ted Williams weight set under the tree on Christmas morning… and, more often than not, they were gathering dust by Groundhog day.
