    Description

    1951 Bowman Willie Mays #305 SGC 40 VG 3. Willie Mays was one of the most gifted baseball talents to ever step onto a baseball diamond. A true natural who was blessed with all five tools a player who could do it all - hitting for average, hitting for power, great speed on the bases, throwing and fielding. His 1951 Bowman rookie card is one of the most sought after cards in the entire hobby. Along with fellow Hall of Fame rookie Mickey Mantle, Mays is responsible for a large percentage of the value in this gorgeously rendered set. The offered card is a great collector's grade example with surface wear to accounting for the final assessment. Graded SGC 40 VG 3.
