Listing Details

Of all of the great baseball players to ever player, few can match William Howard Mays for his talent and wide range of skills. The greatest living baseball player, Mays played from 1951 – 1973 for the New York Giants, San Francisco Giants and the New York Mets. One of the most popular players to ever play the game, he is widely collected and beloved throughout the country. Always compared with Mickey Mantle as they came up the same year, Mays contracts and high quality memorabilia items are actually much scarcer than Mantle’s as there have been no family auctions, no team disposal back in the 1970s or anything like that. Willie Mays original player contracts are truly rare aside from their amazing significance, and hardly ever come to market. Offered is a fresh piece, a wonderful 1966 original player’s contract. Fully executed, this was signed by Willie on February 10, 1966 and Mays was paid $125,000 for the season. In addition a rider comes with this contract on San Francisco Giants letterhead; the rider defers payments on Mays’s contract through 1972 and was initial W.M. by Mays and signed by League President Warren Giles. The contract itself has a gorgeous flowing period signature, this is a rare style of his autograph that hardly ever comes to market; the contract is also signed by Charles Feeney and Warren Giles. Mays hit 37 home runs with 103 RBIs and a .288 average in 1966 with a WAR of 9. The contract itself is quite clean, this is an important and historic personal item from one of the handful of all time great baseball players. The winning bidder will be adding a truly unique, special and wonderful item to their collection. JSA LOA (full).
