A young and determined Willie Mays commands this exceedingly scarce 1953-54 Briggs Meats regional issue. The waxy portrait of "Say Hey" was extracted from a period hot dog box and reveals minimal traces of the original advertising trim along the upper and lower edges. Aside from superficial surface wrinkling which is detectable only under close scrutiny, the Hall of Fame Type presents splendidly and much better than when infrequently offered. The blank reverse displays uniform traces of hot dog grease markings common to the issue.
