    Description

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