Default My Biggest Card Purchase EVER (by Far)--1951 Bowman Willie Mays Rookie

Just wanted to share by most expensive but more importantly favorite cards of all time, this will be part of my "Mt. Rushmore" of cards I own. I don't see any creases, the corners are soft, but everything else looks great and I sent it to SGC for authentication/grade (Hoping for a 4 but we shall see, you never know). Enjoy!

Why not? You are promoting this as your biggest purchase.

That is an awesome looking card and I wouldn't be surprised if it is better than a 4.

If no creases or wrinkles I'd say that looks like a strong 5 to me. Congrats!

Very nice copy of a beautiful card. A young Willie with his whole career ahead of him and on his way to 660 homeruns and 24 all-star appearances. But no one knew that when this card was issued.

In the olden days, that would be an EX+/NM. It's outstanding.
