1952 Bowman #218 Willie Mays - PSA NM-MT 8

Starting Bid - $800, Sold For - $3,525

Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Magnificent ultra high-grade example of one of collecting's most classic cards, the 1952 Bowman #218 Willie Mays. Of the 796 examples submitted to PSA for grading to date, only six copies have ever graded higher. This is a stunning card! The corners are strong and sharp, with just the slightest hint of wear visible under magnification. The colors are bright, bold, and crisp. Perfectly clean, both front and back, with snow-white borders. The centering is approximately 40/60 left to right (exceptional for this card, which is so often miscut). This is an outstanding example in all respects of one of Willie Mays' most important cards, and one of 1950s bubblegum-card collecting's most famous and universally recognized classics. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $3,525
