(LOT 76)
1954 Bowman #89 Willie Mays PSA 9 MINT

MAYS' MVP CAMPAIGN!!! When Willie Mays returned from the armed forces for the 1954 season, the prestigious Bowman Gum Co. was well prepared to mark his highly anticipated return. Issuing an outstanding Mays lithographic leaning-on-bat cardboard subject, this extraordinary PSA 9 MINT classic issue joins a meager 12 other examples as the finest of its kind! The 1954 campaign would be a breakout year for Mays, to say the least. Not only would he claim the NL MVP Award via his league-leading .345 batting average and 41 round-trippers, he would also lead the Giants to a championship with his amazing over-the-shoulder catch in game one at the Polo Grounds echoing for eternity. Safe to say, just as spectacular as that iconic catch are the brilliant aesthetics of this pack-fresh offering. Sparking hues are the highlight of this classic Mays pose, with immaculate surfaces and sharp corner tips the final superlatives of this time-defying jewel!

MIN BID $2,000
