Willie MAYS (HOF)


A short bio from the Helmar “This Great Game” card back: The next time you see a grown man playing stickball with a group of kids in New York, take a close look: it might be Giants' star center fielder Willie Mays. Young at heart, The Say Hey Kid plays with unbridled enthusiasm and joy. So far, that joy has translated into big numbers for the strong young man from Westfield, Alabama. Mays might lead the league in batting one season, steals the next, and homers in another. His skills are as broad as his shoulders, which just might carry the G-Men to a World Series title.
