Description

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Unlike their popular slurpee discs, 7-11’s first baseball card issue was an unpolished pink card with a small black and white photograph of the player and archaic typeface. The cards were such a disappointment to the public that the scheduled second series was never published. But what was unpopular in 1961 has become elusive in the 21st century. Few examples have survived and this EX card of the great centerfielder Willie Mays ranks as the best in the set. A wonderful likeness of the “Say Hey Kid” with the pinkish hue easy on the eyes of the beholder.
