(LOT 53)
1955 Topps #194 Willie Mays PSA 9 MINT - Highest PSA Example!

PACK-FRESH MAYS!!! Coming off his finest season, the Say Hey Kid would virtually replicate his '54 MVP numbers by posting a stellar .319 average and 127 RBIs in the '55 campaign while reaching the 50+ homer mark for the first of two times in his illustrious career, courtesy of his 51 dingers. Topps celebrated his remarkable MVP season by issuing their inaugural landscape issue in 1955, with the Willie Mays subject portraying two classic portrait and batting poses. Similar to the Say Hey Kid's all-time stature, this PSA 9 MINT offering joins only eleven other examples as the finest of its kind! One of this supreme offering's earth-shattering qualities is the atypically near-perfect centering between four dazzling white borders, with a majority of 1955 Topps subjects reflecting somewhat skewed images.

The classic Mays poses emanate brilliant hues and crisp resolution, set against a seemingly flawless light blue background. Immaculate surfaces and pinpoint corners would make one think this breathtaking 68-year-old memento has just been pulled from a 1955 Topps wax pack. A highly coveted Willie Mays subject in high-grade, several prior sales include $26K and $24K pricing points, with its unparalleled eye appeal and pinnacle assessment making it a must-have dynamic duo for any sophisticated Mays collector!

MIN BID $5,000
