(LOT 72)
1951 Bowman #305 Willie Mays Rookie PSA 6 EX-MT

MAYS ROOKIE!!! As Ty Cobb accomplished some 30+ years before him, Mays personified the phrase "5 tool player", and his legacy will forever be embellished in our National Pastime's history. Whether it was his amazing "over the shoulder" catch in the 1954 World Series in the deepest confines of the Polo Grounds, his 660 round trippers, his "cannon-like" arm or base running skills, Mays' legacy will outlast eternity, and we cannot imagine a finer testament to his unparalleled legacy than a high-grade Bowman rookie card.

Mays is considered by many experts to be the greatest player to ever play the game. His legacies are long listed, which makes this Willie May's 1951 Bowman rookie card so desirable. One look at Willie's youthful batting pose turns back the clock to an era when baseball was simply viewed as men playing a kid's game. A batting stance image of a youthful Mays reflects clear registration, framed by clean borders. Strong EX-MT Mays Rookie.
