Presented is a 1950s Willie Mays New York Giants vintage-signed magazine photo by the Hall of Fame center fielder who is regarded by many as the Major League Baseball GOAT. Why many consider Mays as the "Greatest of All Time" is that it's possible that Mays was the greatest 5-tool player in history: Hit for average (.302), power (660 home runs), field (phenomenal range and won 12 Gold Gloves), throw (a powerful and accurate arm), and run (great speed in the outfield and 339 stolen bases). The 24-time All-Star played his entire career for the New York/San Francisco Giants, except for nearly two full years at the tail end of his career for the New York Mets. The 2-time NL MVP was a World Champion with the 1954 New York Giants. It is rare to find items that Mays signed in the 1950s. The magazine photo is signed "Best Wishes Willie Mays New York." Apparently, Mays wrote and crossed out "Best," a separate inscription from his "Best Wishes." The signature rates 6.5/10 in vintage black ink. The photo appears EXCELLENT. The signed photo has been encapsulated and PSA/DNA certified as AUTHENTIC AUTO.
