This is a super rare piece for any baseball fanatic to add to their collection. Mays is one of the greatest MLB players of all time, having become a 24-time All-Star, a 1954 World Series champion, a 12-time Gold Glove Award winner, and much more over the course of his career.

His legacy has been honored in many ways following his playing days, including having his jersey number retired by the Giants and New York Mets. The MLB also named the World Series MVP trophy in his honor.

As previously reported, Mays recently passed away due to heart failure in Palo Alto, Calif. He was 93.
