Extremely unusual 1951 Bowman #305 Willie Mays rookie card with a factory printing error. The card has a severe factory miscut on the front, featuring a portion of the card to the right on the sheet. When it comes to vintage card collecting anything unusual is of great note. An extremely rare and unusual printing anomaly such as this that can be appreciated at a glance and that is so unusual is particularly desirable. Graded EX-MT 6 (MC) by PSA. Bright and clean, with no creases, only light corner wear, and a perfectly clean reverse. This is a fascinating, and very striking printing error of Willie Mays’ rookie card from the 1951 Bowman set. Because of its uniqueness, there is no consensus on the value of this card. We are confident the auction process will provide clarity. Reserve $400. Estimate (open).
