Classic June 2005
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
From one coast to another, Willie Mays was a Giant in every sense of the word. For better than 20 seasons, the "Say-Hey Kid" wore the Giants black-and-orange in both New York and Frisco. Having clubbed more than 500 homers (660) and 3,000-plus hits (only Hank Aaron and Eddie Murray have since matched the feat), Mays retired after making Fall Classic appearances in both his first and last seasons. The white flannel pants, with black and orange piping along each leg, feature Mays' name, uniform number, pant size and inseam measurement ("Mays 24 32 26 ins") chain-stitched in black upon a white felt strip tag in the waist. Also located in the waistband are a "Rawlings 32" label and an adjacent wash tag. These pants were subsequently issued to other players as evidenced by three numbers (27, 15, and 36) and the name "Taylor" written in faded black marker along the waistband. Original and unaltered, the pants display moderate wear throughout. The pants have been Graded A8.5 by SCD Authentic. Included is a pair of Mays' black knit stirrups, which remain unaltered and were likely part of the same uniform. LOA from Dan Knoll & Dave Bushing/SCD Authentic.
