    Description

    1951 Bowman Willie Mays #305 SGC 80 EX/NM 6. The rookie card featuring a member of the HoF is usually the top card in any production unless you share that series with Mickey Mantle. The '51 Bowman set featured the first "M&M" duo thanks to the rookie appearances of legends Mickey Mantle and this man, Willie Mays. A part of the tougher high-number run, this solid SGC 80 EX/NM 6 example presents very nicely with clean borders and a central image free of press roller lines which seems to be so common with this issue. Corners show on modest wear at tips and the back is stain free. Rated based on centering alone. A must have card for the Mays or the 1950s enthusiast.
