1954-55 Willie Mays Santurce Crabbers Photograph

Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $402.50

Original photograph of Willie Mays with the Santurce Crabbers of the Puerto Rican Winter League, taken just following "the catch" and the Giants' victory in the 1954 World Series. 1954-55 was the only season in which Mays played with Santurce. This team is particularly noted for having both Mays and Clemente in the same outfield. Mays tore up the league. He led the team to the title, won the batting crown with a .395 average, and was told not to come back. This is the first original photograph of Mays in his Santurce uniform that we have ever seen. Nr/Mt. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$400. SOLD FOR $402.50
