(LOT 154)
1969 Topps #190 Willie Mays PSA 10 GEM MINT

LOW POP TEN!!! Willie Mays' career statistics and longevity in the pre-PED era, the more recent acknowledgement of Mays as perhaps the finest five-tool player ever, and the overwhelming consensus of many surveys and other expert analyses carefully examining Mays' relative performance have led to a growing opinion that Mays was possibly the greatest all-around baseball player of all-time In 1999, Mays placed second on The Sporting News"List of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players", making him the highest-ranking living player. Later that year, he was also elected to the Major League Baseball All-Century Team.

Mays is one of five National League players to have had eight consecutive 100-RBI seasons, along with Mel Ott, Sammy Sosa, Chipper Jones and Albert Pujols. Mays hit over 50 home runs in 1955 and 1965, representing the longest time span between 50-plus home run seasons for any player in Major League Baseball history. His final Major League Baseball appearance came on October 16 during game 3 of the 1973 World Series. The offered card is the 1 of only 6 in the PSA 10 holder from the 1969 Topps series. A gorgeous card that is well worthy of its lofty status. Grab this one and only PSA 10 GEM MINT example!!!
