Baseball signed in blue ink in the sweet spot, sealed in PSA/DNA cube with authentication label and an overall grade of 9.5
Baseball signed: "Willie Mays". Official Major League (Selig) baseball, signed in blue ink in the sweet spot. With PSA/DNA sticker and Certificate of Authenticity (#E34310). Considered by some the greatest all-around 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 (born in 1934) played for the Braves in Milwaukee (1954-1965) and Atlanta (1966-1974). He holds the record for hitting more home runs in his career than any other player (755), passing Babe Ruth's 714 in 1974. 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 RBI's, and his batting average over 23 seasons was .305 - indications of the all-around ability of this quiet man from Mobile. The N.L. MVP in 1957, he appeared in a record 24 All-Star contests with the Braves (Milwaukee and Atlanta) and Brewers. PSA/DNA Overall grade: 9.5. Autograph grade: 10. Baseball grade: 9.
