1951 Bowman #305 Willie Mays PSA NM-MT 8

Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $9,860.00

Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Extraordinary super high-grade example of one of card collecting's greatest classics, and Mays' first and true rookie card. The 1951 Bowman of Willie Mays has firmly established itself as one of the most desirable of all baseball cards. The offered example is perfectly crisp and clean, with four square corners, exceptional printing registration, with virtually perfect centering, and with just a barely detectable hint of vertical printline. This reverse is perfectly crisp and clean, without even the slightest trace of the gum or wax staining which so frequently affects 1951 Bowmans. This is a world-class high-grade example of Willie Mays' rookie card. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$6,000+. SOLD FOR $9,860.00
