(LOT 76)
1961 Topps #150 Willie Mays PSA 9 MINT - Only One PSA Example Graded Higher!

SUPERIOR MAYS!!! Currently, PSA has encapsulated some 6,300+ '61 Topps Willie Mays #150 subjects, with this PSA 9 MINT offering only bested by a single PSA 10 example! Indeed, this museum-worthy gem's pack-fresh aesthetics are more than worthy of the highest hobby accolades. The 1961 campaign would see Willie Mays belt 40 round-trippers, the start of an incredible 5-year run where he would wallop 226 home runs or an average of over 45 per season. Most would agree that the Say Hey Kid was baseball's finest five-tool player, with his unparalleled skill sets placing him as one of baseball's greatest all-time players. Likewise, the magnificent eye appeal of this spine-tingling marvel boasts cardboard superiority, with the classic Mays portrait image revealing fine resolution and a sparkling array of robust hues. Immaculate surfaces and razor-sharp corners are additional superlatives supporting the hallowed assessment, and the only slight imperfection is the classic illustration favoring the right edge between four blinding white borders. Synonymous with Mays' unequivocal legacy, this pack-fresh keepsake merits a final resting place in one of the finest Say Hey Kid or 1961 Topps compilations!
