Description:
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.

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
