There are hall of famers and there are HALL OF FAMERS. Despite his sometimes surly personality, the Say Hey Kid is one of the best or the rare breed that are hall of famers. He was a 24 time all star and 2 time MVP. He ranks 5th all time in home runs with 660 and the only juice flowing through his body was OJ. He might just have been the finest 5-tool player in the game.This ball comes from my dad's estate. He collected for 30 years and attended games, shows, private signings. I was with my dad when this ball was signed. There was a sports card show at Westshore Plaza in Tampa and Mr. Mays was there to sign for you if you had a ticket. In an effort to keep shipping costs low. I'll include the cube and will wrap it in bubble wrap and enclose it in a Priority Mail flat rate $6.80 envelope. If you want me to ship in a box, let me know before paying so I can get you pricing on that. If you aren't happy after receiving the ball, send it back. I'll refund your money.
