    Description

    1951 Bowman Willie Mays #305 PSA NM+ 7.5. Placing a close second behind the rookie card of fellow Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays is responsible for a large percentage of the value in this gorgeously rendered set, one firmly nestled in most collectors' top ten list of favored 1950's issues. Like Mantle, his appearance comes in the final high-numbered cards of this issue. Considering his immense talent, accomplishments and contributions to the game we wonder if Mays is due for a surge in collector appreciation.

    Graded PSA NM+ 7.5. It's not often that one lays eyes upon this card that is quite so sharp as the offered example. Print defects, gum and wax staining, so often a problem with this issue, are entirely absent here. Centering defects are similarly not a concern. A studied attempt to find flaws is limited to slight wear at corner tips. Colors are deep and saturated, the border is a refreshing white.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
