Detailed description on our website.
Sweet-swinging “five tool” baseball star Willie Mays is depicted going through his paces at the plate in this series of 1952 wire service photos. Accompanied by a 5/28/52 International News Photos press blurb, these (5) photos capture Mays in sequence going through the phases of his prodigious swing in his last game of the 1952 season prior to reporting for military service. These distinct 8x10 black & white photos show average (VG to VG-EX) quality with deference to reverse side adhesive/paper residue. While traces of residue have bled over to the borders on some of the obverses, the image areas are unaffected and remain highly appealing.
