    Description

    1951 Willie Mays Original Photograph Used for 1952 Berk Ross Card, PSA/DNA Type 1.
    That diamond-shaped patch on the left sleeve, one of our favorites in the history of Major League sleeve adornments, appeared on all National League jerseys to recognize the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Senior Circuit, ensuring that this marvelous portrait photograph dates to the subject's 1951 Rookie of the Year campaign. It's likewise the uniform style worn by a jubilant home team at the Polo Grounds as Bobby Thomson struck his immortal Shot Heard 'round the World to punch the Giants' ticket to a World Series clash with the Yankees.

    If the image looks familiar, we'll wager you're a trading card enthusiast, as the shot found a home upon the obverse of Mays' entry in the 1952 Berk Ross issue. This offering measures about 6x8.25" and has the following notations on back: "Willie Mays," "Apr 13 1954" (date stamp) and production notes. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
