    1951 Bowman Willie Mays #305 PSA EX 5. A year for endings and beginnings describes the 1951 season. Retirement came to stars & HoFers like Johnny Vander Meer, Bobby Doerr and the great Joe DiMaggio. Just beginning their careers were two future legends in Mickey Mantle and one of most talented baseball players ever in Willie Mays. While Mantle started a little slow out of the gate, Mays belted 127 hits, 20 home runs and a .274 average earning Rookie of The Year honors. Both of their rookie cards are found in the gorgeous 1951 Bowman issue making it one of the hottest sets for HoF rookie hounds in the entire hobby. Our offered example is a visual eye-catcher with a remarkable portrait that is centered just about as perfectly as one can expect. There is some modest surface wear at corners but all four have defined tips. Graded PSA EX 5.
