    Description

    1952 Topps Willie Mays #261 SGC 70 EX+ 5.5. The second most celebrated card from one of the hobby's most celebrated sets. Willie Mays made his debut at the same time a fellow newcomer named Mickey Mantle. Like Mantle, Mays is rightfully considered one of the key cards in the set and top end examples tend to be fiercely contested at auction. Graded SGC 70 EX+ 5.5. Corners show only modest tip wear. Colors are deep and saturated and are set off very nicely surrounded by the bright white border. A very nice card with close to precise centering as a bonus.
