1952 Bowman
#218 Willie Mays

This scarce high-number series issue of Giants Hall-of-Fame legend Willie Mays is one of the two most valuable cards within the attractive and popular 1952 Bowman set. Featuring a stunning artistic image of a 21-year old Mays, this was Willie’s second-year baseball card issue.

Considered by many to be the greatest five-tool player in major league baseball history, Mays enjoyed a spectacular 22-year career (1951-1973). He was named to 24 All Star teams, was a 12-time Gold Glove Award winner, a two-time National League MVP Award winner, and a two-time World Series champion. Mays is one of the most iconic players from baseball’s Golden Age of the 1950’s.

The offered card is a very high-end NM-MT 8 example. Presenting with much better eye-appeal than is typically found on this issue, this card is nicely centered with clean borders, outstanding print quality, and boldly colored artwork. Clean, well balanced, and exceptionally attractive.
