Willie Mays was nicknamed “The Say Hey Kid” and many consider him to be the greatest all-around player of all time. Mays won two MVP awards during his big league career and tied a record with twenty-four appearances in the All-Star Game. He ended his career with 660 career home runs. In 1999, Mays placed second on The Sporting News list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players, making him the highest-ranking living player. He finished his career with a record 22 extra-inning home runs and is one of four NL players to have eight consecutive 100-RBI seasons. Other accolades include a World Championship in 1954, a twelve time Gold Glove Award winner, 1951 Rookie of the Year and voted the All-Star Game MVP twice. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1979, his first year of eligibility. On the left front tail is the “Spalding” manufacturer’s tag with attached size “42” label. Below is “64 42” embroidered in black chain stitch. Inside the left front tail is a wash instructions label. Attached is a flag tag with "SET 1 1964". Inside the rear collar is a grey felt strip tag with player name “Mays” embroidered in black chain stitch. Across the front is “SAN FRANCISCO”. Player number “24’ appears on back. All numbers and letters are done in black on orange cotton twill. Mays has signed the front, a large signature in black marker rating an 8-9. The jersey is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion, shows excellent use. Accompanied by a LOA from JSA. Magnificent, all original condition.
