Say hey to the "Say Hey Kid". Put the emphasis on kid here, because Willie Mays was still only nineteen years old when he began the 1951 season with the Minneapolis Millers. Even at this tender age, he already had four seasons of Negro and Minor League play under his belt. He needed less than two months with the Class AAA affiliate to earn promotion to the Majors, batting .477 in 35 games to force a call-up to Giants on 5/24/51. Of course Willie made a big impact at every level during his rise to greatness, including impacting the offered '51 Millers program with listings on four different pages. This vintage publication remains complete with an intact but moderately worn spine, decent gloss and strong cover colors to rate a solid (VG+) designation. Also listed are fellow HOFers Ray Dandridge and Hoyt Wilhelm.
