    Description

    1951 Bowman Willie Mays #305 PSA NM 7. Along with Mickey Mantle, this guy has made the gorgeous 1951 Bowman issue one of the hottest sets for high-powered rookies in card collecting history. Each year the value of the set, hinging largely on the power of these two cards, continues to rise, and there's no end in sight. Willie Mays prowled the outfield like few others and some say better than his Bronx-based cohort in Yankee Stadium. Offered is one impressive card which has been graded PSA NM 7. It doesn't take long to realize why. The reverse has some faint wax staining that is so common for this issue. The front is a beauty to behold. Outstanding colors are encompassed by a close to problem-free white frame that shows one very small surface scratch in the bottom border, barely visible but mentioned for accuracy. The portrait of Mays shows none of the press roller lines leaving a card that really grabs your attention.
