Jet Magazine-June 22,1972-5" X 7 1/2"-62 pages. This vintage Jet Magazine-which originally sold for thirty five cents-features a color cover photo of Willie Mays. The magazine also features a five page article with photos of Willie Mays-"A New Willie With A New Team".Willie Mays was the model of a multi-talented baseball hero during his 22-season major league career. A speedy center fielder, he stole 338 bases, won 11 Gold Gloves for defensive skill, amassed 3283 hits, and slugged 660 home runs during his big-league career. Mays was a star right out of the gate: he was the National League's Rookie of the Year in 1951, playing with an eager energy and charisma that earned him the nickname of the Say Hey Kid. His dashing over-the-shoulder catch of a deep center field fly by Vic Wertz in the 1954 World Series was captured on newsreel film and has become the signature moment of his career. Mays played for 22 seasons between 1951 and 1973, nearly all of them for the Giants. (The franchise moved from New York to San Francisco in 1958, Mays moving with the team.) Mays played in 24 All Star games (a record number that he shares with Stan Musial and Hank Aaron) and was named the National League's most valuable player in both 1954 and 1965. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1979.The Jet Magazine has been autographed on the front cover by Willie Mays..........BOTH MAGAZINE AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.........................
