(LOT 69)
1954 Topps #90 Willie Mays PSA 8 NM-MT

STELLAR WILLIE FROM '54!!! This magnificent PSA 8 NM-MT 1954 Topps #90 Willie Mays offering portrays one of the finest Willie Mays portrait images known, only bested by a mere 16 higher-graded examples on the PSA Pop Chart! The 1954 season would be a breakout year for the Say Hey Kid. Not only would he claim the National League's MVP award with his league leading .345 batting average and 41 home runs, but he would also lead the Giants to a World Championship in a four-game sweep over the Cleveland Indians in the World Series. Mays had four hits and drove in three for the victorious Giants.

But most notably, in Game 1, Willie Mays made his incredible over the shoulder catch at the Polo Grounds, which remains one of baseball's most iconic memories and film clips. This awe-inspiring 1954 Topps Mays card features tremendous eye appeal with two crystal clear Mays images, a sparkling yellow-hued setting, fine centering, near-flawless surfaces and pinpoint corners. Easily meriting the seldom surfacing PSA 8 assessment, both in its technical attributes and striking aesthetic allure, this gem would make an outstanding addition to the finest of Say Hey Kid collections or 1954 Topps Set PSA Registered gatherings!
