    1955 Topps Willie Mays #194 SGC Mint+ 9.5 - None Higher. Who can resist the infectious grin of one of baseball's most talented athletes? When it appears on the front of a 1955 Topps baseball card we say it is impossible. No one can dispute Topps owned the 1950's baseball card market. Year after year their staff produced annual promotions that defined the era like the Beatles defined the 1960's music world. The series is a true hobby classic and Mays is one of the most important 1955 entries. The timeless portrait make this card a must have for the '50's or Willie Mays specialist.

    Graded SGC Mint+ 9.5. This is the one and only card graded 9.5 under the new SGC system. The SGC Legacy Census Report shows no others grading higher! The example we offer is close to beyond comparison. Centering, corners, surfaces, inks, gloss and edges all display a vibrancy and excellence one would expect in 1955 but certainly not more than 60 years later. This card shows an almost complete absence of any signs of ever being handled by human hands. The highest quality in all regards and it stands to reason that this remarkable example stands atop both SGC and PSA population charts.
