1951 Bowman #305 Willie Mays Rookie SGC EX 60

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,920

Graded EX 60 by SGC (submitted by REA). Extremely desirable rookie card of legendary Hall of Famer Willie Mays, one of the most important and famous 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). This is a very attractive example, bright and clean, with four strong corners and centering to the left. The reverse is clean, with a small wrinkle visible. The 1951 Bowman Willie Mays rookie has always been a card-collecting icon, especially among postwar cards. This is an attractive example of this classic in an extremely desirable grade, offering an outstanding value compared to many higher-graded examples. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,920
