(LOT 150)
1965 Topps #250 Willie Mays PSA 9 MINT

MONSTER MAYS!!! The 1965 season would arguably be the finest of Willie Mays incredible Hall of Fame career. Capturing his second MVP award, Mays would wallop 52 long-balls, likewise the second time in his career he would reach the 50+ homer mark. Adding 112 R.B.I.'s and a robust .317 batting average to his world-class resume, this 1965 Topps gem encapsulated in a PSA Mint 9 holder is synonymous with his sensational campaign. Bested by only a meager 2 PSA examples, it portrays a "no-tilt" and virtually dead-centered image that typically reveals skewed positioning.

The classic "bat over shoulders" Mays pose emanates pristine resolution and contrast, perfectly situated between four blizzard-like borders. The razor sharp corner tips and brilliant surfaces are the final exclamation points for a card that stands extremely close to sheer perfection. We cannot imagine the 2 "Gem Mint 10's" possibly surpassing the aesthetics of this "spine-tingling" prize that merits a secure place in any sophisticated PSA Registered Set!
