(LOT 213)
1962 Topps #300 Signed Willie Mays PSA 6 EX-MT Auto 8 NM-MT - POP 1; Highest Graded Example!

BEST OF THE BEST MAYS!!! Trying to find any 1962 Topps subject with near-perfect centering and no surface chipping on their ultra-condition-sensitive wood-grain borders is an excruciating task, let alone coming across such an example that has been signed by the immortal Willie Mays. Such is the case for this extraordinary 1962 Topps #300 autographed Mays subject, proudly boasting a sensational PSA 6 EX-MT card grade and stellar PSA 8 NM-MT vintage signature! Even more impressive is that this unique for the grade rarity just happens to be the SOLE and HIGHEST GRADED signed 1962 Topps Mays on the PSA Pop Chart!

Synonymous with the Say Hey Kid's arguable standing as baseball's greatest five-tool player comes along this miraculous scripted fresh to the hobby card recently graded by PSA. Obscure in any grade, PSA's census report lists only 22 signed Mays examples, with this museum-worthy offering's PSA 6 grade standing alone as the finest of its kind. Even more enticing is the fact that the impressive PSA 8 blue ballpoint pen Wille Mays autograph situated across his classic Giants flannels is a bona fide vintage signature, most likely scripted in the mid-1960s. Spot-on centering, near-impossible-to-find clean wood-grain borders, sparkling hues, crystal-clear clarity and the lack of any obtrusive surface flaws justify the card's assessment, with only subtle corner wear preventing a higher grade. One of the most significant signed Mays cards on the planet, its pinnacle POP 1 stature merits it a final resting place in one of Willie's premier autograph gatherings!
