    Description

    1952 Topps Willie Mays #261 PSA EX 5. The second most celebrated card from one of the hobby's most celebrated sets. Willie Mays made his debut at the same time a fellow newcomer named Mickey Mantle. Like Mantle, Mays is rightfully considered one of the key cards in the set and top end examples tend to be fiercely contested at auction. Graded PSA EX 5 but the modest corner tip and top layer wear to explain the grade. Colors are rich and saturated and surrounded by a bright white border. If visual appeal was a factor in grading this card would be ranked higher.
