Graded 80 EX-MT 6 by SGC. The fascination with Mickey Mantle has had serious ramifications on Willie Mays. Both played centerfield in New York, both were great hitters, both came to the big leagues for winning teams in 1951, so why are Mays’ cards percentage points of what Mantle’s cards are valued. The 1951 Bowman #305 Willie Mays high number rookie should easily be valued equally with the Mantle and this offered Mays is an amazing place to start. The Sportscard Guaranty Company has slabbed this card an EX-MT 80 (the equal of a PSA 6) because of the white borders, sharp image and brilliant color. The card is off-center about 80/20 but retains the qualities all around to keep the card in this tremendous high grade. The reverse of the card is clean with a singular exception, a wax stain along the bottom edge. Willie Mays is the greatest living player and everyone should own his “true” rookie card.
