    Description

    1951 Bowman Willie Mays #305 PSA NM+ 7.5. Along with fellow Hall of Fame rookie Mickey Mantle, Mays is responsible for a large percentage of the value in this gorgeously rendered set, firmly in most collectors' top ten list of favored issues. But it's not often that one lays eyes upon any card from the set quite so sharp as the offered example, much less one of the heroic rookies. Print defects and gum and wax staining, so often a problem with this issue, are entirely absent here. Centering defects are similarly not a concern. In fact, a studied attempt to find flaws is limited to slight wear at corner tips and slightly less than perfect centering. Graded PSA NM+ 7.5, one of only four in NM+.
