ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
Willie Mays, the "Say Hey Kid," played with enthusiasm and exuberance while excelling in all phases of the game - hitting for average and power, fielding, throwing and base running His amazing career statistics include 3,283 hits and 660 home runs. The Giants' superstar earned National League Rookie of the Year honors in 1951 and two MVP awards. He accumulated 12 Gold Gloves, played in an amazing 24 All-Star games (matching his famous number) and participated in four World Series. And over 60 years ago, Hall of Famer Willie Mays made "The Catch." It came in New York's Polo Grounds, in the first game of the 1954 World Series. With the score tied late in the game, Indians first baseman Vic Wertz clubbed a long drive to deep centerfield at the Polo Grounds. At the crack of the bat, Mays turned his back to the plate, raced for the outfield wall, glanced up at the last minute, and pulled the ball in over his shoulder. Nearly 430 feet from the plate, he whirled and threw on a line to the infield. The play killed the Indians' threat, and the Giants went on to win the game and sweep the Series, the last Giants' World Series victory before their 2010 "Torture" Championship. Many experts consider Willie the best all-around baseball in the history of the game and it's hard to argue with that assessment. Willie hand-signed this Giants jersey right on his famous number "24" and then we went to work creating not only a classic collectible but a beautiful piece of Sports Art. SGA Quality Framed in wood moulding, UV-protective glass (very important for signature protection!) and classic classic Giants double-matting, this beauty is presented in our "Deluxe" Framing that includes two great Corner Inset Photos (one the famous photo of "The Catch"), and "Say Hey Kid" Plate that includes the classic throwback Giants logo. OR YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN PLATE! The perfect collectible celebrating the greatest Giant of all-time.
