Key Blue Chip Investment Piece

Among the highest graded Willie Mays rookie cards we've had the pleasure of brokering in our long tenure. This critically important 1950s RC card lies within a SGC 7.5 holder and is really just a whisker away from being a $40,000+ '8'. Largely fresh throughout with a periphery void of typical chipping along with NM-MT corners and card stock. The card boasts mostly clean borders around with fantastic centering (only a modest left to right shift is present). The surfaces present very well with bright color, wonderful clarity and a thick layer of gloss on the front surface. Modest excess print along the bottom portion of the card keeps from grading higher. Mays is arguably the greatest all-around baseball player in history and immensely popular among investors. In our opinion, this card is very much under valued and will someday be commanding the same value as Mantle. An important 1950s investment piece which comes recommended by PWCC. One of over 15,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 9th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
