Important Investment Piece

Arguably the 2nd most important rookie card from the 1950s and seldom seen on the market in such high-grade. The offered Willie Mays rookie card lies within a highly coveted PSA 7 holder and fully lives up to the hype. The surfaces are spectacular with tremendous gloss, bright color and precise clarity. Free of typical print snow or factory runner marks. The card possesses clean white borders, crisp edges and solid NRMT corners. A modest and highly typical left to right shift could be considered the only 'flaw'. Mays is among the greatest all-around Baseball players in history with his incredible outfield play and remarkable hitting skills. It's in our opinion that this is a vastly under-valued rookie card and could easily be a $30,000+ example in the coming years. A critically important card which is deserving of celebration. Part of a tremendous, high-grade '51 Bowman near complete set break on the market this month. Almost every card is assessed by PSA as NM-MT to MINT with beautiful attributes throughout.
