Say hey to a photo steeped in baseball card history. This 4x5 Willie Mays original Type I photo was taken by renowned photographer William Jacobellis c.1951 and was used for two different period trading cards. One of the cards is the 1954 Topps edition which features a portrait of Mays along with this batting pose image captured by Jacobellis and the other card is from the obscure 1955 All American Sports Club series with the Jacobellis batting pose only. Stamped on the reverse with a Jacobellis credit stamp this ancient photo presents handsomely, however moderate corner wear restricts the technical grade to (VG+). Full photo LOA from PSA/DNA.
