1954 Bowman #89 Willie Mays - SGC MINT 96

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,880

Graded MINT 96 by SGC. Stunning pack-fresh example of this classic early 1950s bubble-gum card of Hall of Famer Willie Mays. This is one of only two 1954 Bowman Willie Mays cards to ever receive a grade of MINT 96 by SGC, with none graded higher. The card exhibits bold, bright colors, four razor-sharp corners, perfect registration, and a flawless surface. Centered just slightly to the right border (approximately 55/45), this is a card that approaches perfection. Perfectly crisp and clean, both front and back, and with perfect gloss. This is a world-class high-grade example of one of the most popular of all Willie Mays cards, and one of the most classic of all 1950s bubble-gum cards. It would be hard to imagine a finer example. The equivalent SMR value is $3,650. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $1,880
