    Description

    1952 Topps Willie Mays #261 SGC 84 NM 7. A Hall of Fame rookie from one of the hobby's most celebrated sets. Willie Mays may not carry quite the same weight as his fellow newcomer Mickey Mantle among '52 Topps collectors but he is rightfully considered one of the key cards in the set. Top examples tend to be fiercely pursued at auction. We certainly expect that advanced collectors will give this specimen the attention it deserves. Light corner wear and close to perfect centering are just two stand-out characteristics of a card that seems to deserve a higher rung on the scale ladder. Graded SGC 84 NM 7, only ten examples have charted higher on the SGC population report. Stunning colors, fresh gloss and an absence of surface wear combine for one eye catching display.
