Photograph signed: "Willie Mays". B/w, 19x16. Willie Mays (born in 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 19054 through 1973; he received the Most Valuable Player Award in 1954 and 1965 and the Gold Glove from 1957 to 1968. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1979. At his retirement, Mays was third on the list of career home run hitters (660), and remains fourth (behind Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds). He retired with a .302 batting average. Shown here is Mays' astonishing catch in New York's Polo Grounds in Game One of the 1954 World Series, robbing Cleveland slugger Vic Wertz of a triple. Mays' Giants went on to a four-game sweep of the heavily favored but now demoralized Indians. Fine condition. Previously authenticated by JSA.
