(LOT 143)
1959 Topps #50 Willie Mays PSA 9 MINT

MINT MAYS!!! Radiant-like to say the least, this absolutely breathtaking 1959 Topps Willie Mays PSA Mint 9 offering has only been bested by three "PSA Gem Mint 10" examples! 1959 would mark the first of Willie May's 8 consecutive 100+ R.B.I. campaigns, adding 34 round-trippers and a stellar .313 average to his legendary resume. Topps close another classic portrait pose to represent the "Say Hey Kid", with the angelic yellow setting placing this issue high among collector's favorite May's baseball cards! Rightfully earning the "Mint 9" assessment, every aspect of this world-class gem borders on perfection! The crystal clear portrait image, blinding white borders, razor sharp corner tips, flawless surfaces and brilliant yellow hued background all combine to formulate one of the finest preserved specimens in the hobby.

MIN BID $1,500
