I was almost going to throw Mays in the rookie batch as his most iconic card, as his 1952 Topps card is well known. This was a very close call. I think it is the wood grain borders that convinced me to pick this one as the 1962 set had a classy feel to it.
I associate him more with the San Francisco Giants rather than the New York Giants, thus making this card more iconic that his rookie card.
There is a great big smile on Willie’s face that just gives it a feeling of fun.
