Auction: Postwar Baseball - 1950s Cards
Graded NM 7 by PSA. Extraordinary high-grade example of one of card collecting's classics and Willie Mays' first and true rookie card. The 1951 Bowman of Mays has long been firmly established as one of the most famous and desirable of all baseball cards. In addition to being one of the two key cards of the set, Mays is also part of the scarce high-number series (#253-324). This is a magnificent card. The offered example is perfectly crisp and clean with four square corners (touch of wear on the top right when held horizontally as intended), exceptional printing registration, and outstanding centering. This reverse is crisp and clean without even the slightest trace of the gum or wax staining that so frequently affect 1951 Bowmans. This is a stunning high-grade example of Willie Mays' rookie card. Reserve $10.
