1951 Bowman #305 Willie Mays Rookie

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $540

Presented is the rookie card of legendary Hall of Famer Willie Mays, one of the most important of all 1950s bubble-gum cards. In addition to being one of the two key cards of the 1951 Bowman set, Mays is part of the scarce high-number series of the set (#253-324). The offered example is modestly graded POOR 10 by SGC due to a number of condition flaws, including heavy creasing. This is a very affordable example of the 1951 Bowman Willie Mays rookie, which has always been a card-collecting icon, especially among postwar cards.  Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $540
