#563 Willie Mays '59 All Star Selection

Willie Mays played in 24 All Star games covering 20 years (two games each year in 1959 through 1962). He hit .307 in those games and an OBP of .366.

When his regular card comes up there will be a lot more to say about Willie, one of the all time greats and my childhood best friend's favorite player.

My copy is, as you can see, far from pristine. But its Willie Mays, so its cool. Here's a another cool shot of Say Hey. this from his early career in New York.

  1. You just don't see certain Willie Mays cards that much. I like this one.
