    Description

    1951 Bowman Willie Mays #305 SGC NM/MT+ 92 Willie Mays played with enthusiasm and exuberance while excelling in all phases of the game- hitting for average and power, fielding, throwing, and baserunning. This lot features one of the most sought after cards in the hobby and it's hard to imagine a finer specimen of the Hall of Fame center fielder's rookie card than this beauty. The centering is phenomenal with creamy white borders that are equal to one another to within fractions of a millimeter. The surface, which is so often a problem with the 1951 Bowman issue, is a strength with this example, free of any print defects and exhibiting bright, bold colors, with stunning original gloss. All four corners are sharp, with a flawless reverse. Don't miss the opportunity to pick up one of the finest examples of the Say Hey Kid's tough 1951 Bowman issue.
