    Description

    1953 Topps Willie Mays #244 SGC 84 NM 7. Bowman may have dropped the proverbial ball for failing to include this young legend-in-the-making in its 1953 issue, but Topps thankfully proved itself to be as sure-handed as the Say Hey Kid himself. But, in fairness, it had been a close call. With their attention turning to the impending football season, the Topps Chewing Gum Co. dodged the future wrath of vintage trading card collectors by making the 1951 Rookie of the Year card number 244 in their short-printed high series, ensuring future availability if not plenitude. Graded SGC 84 NM 7, this amazing example displays exceptionally with bright white borders, spectacular colors, and four solid corners.
