1954 Topps #90 Willie Mays SGC NM/MT 88

Starting Bid - $400.00 , Sold For - $1,175.00

Graded NM/MT 88 by SGC. Magnificent high-grade example of Hall of Famer Willie Mays from the classic 1954 Topps set. This is a pack-fresh gem with flawless colors, perfect gloss, a particularly bright, bold yellow background, and four razor-sharp corners. Centered very slightly to the left, approximately 45/55 L/R. 1954 Topps cards typically suffer from a variety of condition problems, including print defects and a tendency to have soft corners, which make high-grade examples such as this particularly difficult to find. This is a world-class example of one of the key cards of the 1950s, worthy of the finest 1954 Topps set. The portrait really "pops" on this card. This is what a '54 Willie Mays is supposed to look like! Approaches Mint. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grade is $1,300. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,175.00
