TURN BACK THE CLOCK 1965- WILLIE MAYS SMASHES HIS 500TH CAREER HOME RUN

Here’s a “Turn Back the Clock” card for the 1975 set celebrating the 10th anniversary of  Willie Mays 500th career home run, which he hit on September 13th, 1965 off of  Houston Astros starter Don Nottebart:


The blast was the 47th of the season for Mays, on his way to a career-high 52 for the season leading to his second career Most Valuable Player Award, the first which came eleven years earlier while the Giants were still in New York.
He would go on to slam another 160 homers before he was through, ending up with 660 to cement his legacy as one of the greatest sluggers, and most importantly players in baseball history.
