(LOT 69)
1959 Topps #50 Willie Mays PSA 9 MINT

INCREDIBLE WILLIE MAYS!!! Talk about pack-fresh! This breathtaking Willie Mays from the 1959 Topps set looks to be straight from the pack. Set aside the gum and sweep off the cardboard dust to discover this virtually flawless issue. Willie Mays is widely considered the greatest player that the game has ever seen, one of the premier five-tool players who collected 3,293 hits, including 660 career home runs, drove in 1,909 runs and stole 339 bases. Mays' abilities at the plate only mirrored his excellence on the field playing center field for the New York/San Francisco Giants for 21 seasons.

The two-time NL MVP and 12-time Gold Glover led the Giants to three World Series, winning the title in 1954. The offered 1959 Topps #50 encased in a 9 MINT holder from PSA equals the Say Hey Kid's on-field exploits as the finest of its kind. This high-grade Mays presents all of the attributes expected from PSA for a MINT card. The centering is incredible; the color is striking; the corners and edging are as sharp as ever; and the crystal-clear imagery in the photograph looks as if it was just snapped today. We are hard-pressed to determine why this did not earn the prestigious GEM MINT honor, but this is unequivocally one of the finest 1959 Topps Willie Mays we have EVER offered!
