(LOT 428)
1954 Topps #90 Willie Mays PSA 8 NM-MT

'54 WILLIE!!! When Willie Mays returned to Major League Baseball from his tour of duty during the Korean War, the Topps Gum Company celebrated his highly-anticipated homecoming with a Mays subject depicting two classic images; both a portrait and batting pose set against a radiant yellow background. The 1954 season would be a breakout year for the "Say Hey Kid" to say the least! Not only would he claim the National League's MVP award via his league leading .345 batting average and 41 round-trippers, he also led the Giants to a World Championship with a 4-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians in the Fall Classic. Offered is a blazer from 1954. Easily meriting the NM-MT 8 assessment, both its technical attributes and brilliant eye appeal would make this gem a spectacular addition to any world-class Willie Mays or 1954 Topps PSA Registered compilation!
