1952 Bowman Willie Mays #218 SGC 96 Mint 9. Splendid second-year card from the Say Hey Kid shares its position atop the SGC population chart with just one other example, securing its elite status as one of the finest Mays cards to have reached the auction block in recent memory. The early 1950's Bowman issues were typically plagued with print lines, wax stains and imperfect centering, but neither these ailments nor the injuries of passing years are apparent here. The standard by which all others should be judged.
