HANK AARON and WILLIE MAYS Color publicity photograph of the baseball legends in their uniforms posing on the field Photograph signed: "Willie Mays" and "Hank Aaron" Color, 8x10. Considered by many the greatest player of all time, WILLIE MAYS (b. 1931) was the prototype of the complete player; he hit for average and power, ran the bases with intelligence and speed, played a spectacular centerfield and possessed a great arm. He was also remarkably durable, playing in at least 150 games for 13 consecutive seasons. Mays was an All-Star from 1954-1973, he received the Most Valuable Player Award in 1954 and 1965 and the Gold Glove from 1957-1968. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1979. On May 4, 1966, Mays passed Mel Ott's 19-year-old record of 511 National League home runs and finished his career with a total of 660, ranking him third on the all-time list behind Henry Aaron's 755 and Babe Ruth's 714 (he is now in fourth place after Ruth's record was broken by his Godson, Barry Bonds, in 2006). He retired with a .302 batting average. Hall of Famer HANK AARON (b. 1934) played for the Braves in Milwaukee (1954-1965) and Atlanta (1966-1974). From 1974 to 2007, he held the record for most career home runs (755), surpassing Babe Ruth's old record of 714 and finally edged out by Barry Bonds' 762. Aaron is synonymous with home runs, but there was much more to Hammerin' Hank than his 755 round-trippers. He also set all-time marks for the most games, at bats, total bases and RBIs, and his batting average over 23 seasons was .305 - indications of the all-around ability of this quiet man from Mobile. The NL MVP in 1957, he appeared in a record 24 All-Star contests with the Braves (Milwaukee and Atlanta) and Brewers. Ink note on verso (no show-through). Mays signature slightly smudged at "lie". Otherwise, fine condition.
