1960 Topps
Willie Mays


I wonder who's back pocket this card was kept in?

I saw Willie Mays at a local card show about five years ago. He was charging about $200 for his autograph. He was also sitting alone and there was no one in line. Sad.

In my book, Willie Mays is second only to Babe Ruth as the game's greatest player. I payed about $12 for this card a few weeks ago. It lists for $100 in NM condition in one of the recent price guides.

Did I pay too much? Maybe but I couldn't resist this beauty.
