Willie Mays Card Pulled from 1947-66 Exhibits Pack by Vintage Breaks

Willie Mays Card Pulled from 1947-66 Exhibits Pack by Vintage Breaks

Fifty years have passed since the last time Willie Mays took the field - half of a Century. This pack of 1947-66 Exhibits has been sealed since the Say Hey Kid was still playing in the MLB. Come watch a historic pull with a pack-fresh Willie Mays card!

The 1947-1966 Exhibits cards were produced by a company in Chicago, IL. named Exhibit Supply Company. For twenty years, the company distributed baseball cards. The cards are 3-3/8” by 5-3/8” and have a black and white front with a portrait of the player. Overall, about 330 cards were released over those two decades. Back then, you could pick up a pack of 5 cards for just 10 cents. Stars like Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Stan Musial, Hank Aaron, and of course Willie Mays were included in the set.

JK, your breaker for the night, had never opened an Exhibits pack before let alone pull a Willie Mays. Watch what happens in spot two:



Congratulations to Jeffrey Stanford on this Willie Mays! The first-ballot Hall of Famer has 660 home runs, 3,283 hits, a World Series championship, a pair of MVP awards and 12 gold gloves. Willie Mays is an all-timer of all-timers.

Checking the PSA pop report, only 218 Willie Mays exhibits cards have been graded. Zero PSA 10 examples are known to exist. You're never guaranteed a PSA 10 but pack-fresh cards have the best chance, right? Fingers crossed for you, Jeffrey!

The world has changed drastically since the moment that Willie Mays card was inserted into the pack and hidden for 50 years. Obvious things we have now that didn't exist back then like the Internet and cell phones, but here is a fact that will put the timeframe in perspective for you - players didn't wear a helmet when they were batting back when this card was made. Welcome to the world, Willie Mays Exhibit!

We currently have another pack of 1947-1966 Exhibits available now on our website. Look for Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Roberto Clemente, and more! Each spot is $295; just click below for the break info!
