    Description

    1952 Topps Willie Mays #261 SGC 84 NM. A key second-year entry featuring a legendary Hall of Famer from one of the hobby's most celebrated sets. It doesn't get much more exciting than that. 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 most coveted cards in the set. Top examples tend to be fiercely pursued at auction. Graded SGC 84 NM. Light corner wear and a bright, clean border are just two stand-out characteristics of a card that seems to deserve a higher rung on the scale ladder. Only ten examples have charted higher on the SGC population report. Stunning colors, fresh gloss and an absence of surface wear combine for a very appeal card.
