Listing Details

Key card, this classic card is Willie Mays's first Topps card. Notable for its great purple background color, this has always been one of the most collected cards of its era. Never easy to find in quality, the recent market explosion has made these especially desirable in this quality. The offered card has four very sharp corners that come to solid points, bright white borders, a perfect image and great color. The borders are nice and white. Centering to the left border keeps this from being a ridiculously expensive 8! A beautful card as presented, significant due to the player, era and condition. While these are certainly much more common than Mantle's in 7s, the price discrepancy still seems a bit extreme ($9,000 versus $172,000).
