    1951 Willie Mays Minneapolis Millers Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. The legendary outfielder played only six weeks in a Millers uniform before making the jump to the Bigs, so images from this brief minor league stint are tremendously scarce. We've encountered none finer than this magnificent batting shot, a truly classic image by any standard of measurement. A small corner bend at upper left must be reported, but otherwise the 7.5x10" photo presents without distraction. Stamped "May 21, 1951" on verso, with caption clipped from newspaper in which the photo was printed. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
