Description

The day was May 28, 1951, and a twenty-year old Willie Mays played in his fourth-ever game for the New York Giants. Batting third in the lineup behind Eddie Stanky and Whitey Lockman, Mays focused his energy on making up for the double play Lockman had just hit into, costing the Giants their lead runner and two outs. And so, in the first inning with two down, Mays proceeded to hit his first ever big-league home run, blasted off Braves ace Warren Spahn. Offered is an original game program from this legendary clash at the Polo Grounds. The exterior is in attractive upper-middle grade condition, displaying no obtrusive blemishes, an untorn spine as well smooth edges and corners. All of the interior pages are included and, barring the detached middle scorecard, each is bound well. Neatly scored in pencil, the scorecard tells the story of a (4-1) victory for Spahn and the visiting Boston Braves. The interior is otherwise clean with a stellar overall appearance. A true piece of baseball history that is most certainly missing from most New York Giants collections.
