    Description

    1952 Topps Willie Mays #261 SGC 84 NM 7. A Hall of Fame rookie from one of the hobby's most celebrated sets. While Willie doesn't carry quite the same weight as his fellow newcomer Mickey Mantle among '52 Topps collectors, he is rightfully considered one of the key cards in the set and top examples tend to be fiercely contested at auction. We certainly expect that advanced collectors will give this specimen the attention it deserves, as only six examples have ever charted higher on the SGC population report. Bold colors, strong gloss and an absence of wear accounts for its lofty position.
