(LOT 133)
1952 Topps #261 Willie Mays PSA 8 NM-MT

BIG SAY HEY!!! The 'Say Hey' Kid's memorable over the shoulder 1954 World Series catch will always be remembered as one of baseballs greatest moments; however, even that catch cannot be considered as spectacular as this incredible PSA NM-MT 8 1952 Topps card. Willie is only one of 6 members of the legendary 600 home run club and, after hitting his 600th in 1969, was only the 2nd player to accomplish the feat since Babe Ruth. If Mays hadn't missed 266 games in 52 & 53 due to Military service, he would of challenged Babe Ruths HR record. He is considered by many experts to be the greatest '5 tool' player to ever grace the diamond, and is easily the greatest living ballplayer. This 1952 Topps card has clear registration set against a dark violet background and would make any advanced collector yearn to add this card to their collection. Clean white borders are well defined by great centering with sharp edging and square corners. The back of the card reflects fine print registration and both the front and back surfaces are clean. Now is your chance to own this beauty!

MIN BID $7,500
