(LOT 36)
1954 Bowman #89 Willie Mays PSA 9 MINT

NONE BETTER!!! When Willie Mays returned from the armed forces for the 1954 season, the prestigious Bowman Gum Company was well prepared to mark his highly anticipated return. Issuing an outstanding Mays lithographic "leaning on bat" cardboard subject, it reveals a good-natured Mays grin that reflects the star outfielders ultimate joy of playing the grand ole game of baseball. Presented here is a spectacular PSA "MINT 9" copy of this classic issue that appears to have just been pulled from a Bowman wax pack, and worthy of an esteemed place in any premier gathering.

Brilliant pastel-like hues highlight the classic Mays pose. A razor-sharp perimeter includes four pinpoint corner tips, and both surfaces have eluded any potential wear. A monumental heirloom for what is arguably considered Willie May's greatest season ever, it merits a secure place in any sophisticated PSA Registered compilation! None better than this PSA 9 MINT example...
