Description

Presented is a 1958 Hires Root Beer Test card of Willie Mays. The “Say Hey Kid” is undoubtedly the cornerstone in this fantastically rare regional issue. Of the two color variations found in the set, this Mays is adorned by the orange background. The unnumbered Mays grades (FR-GD) with multiple heavy creases and significantly rounded corners. Despite those flaws, this is an attractive keepsake for any 1950s regional collection.
