Original 1951 photograph issued the day after Willie Mays made his major league debut put the photo itself was taken just before it happened and it shows manager Leo Durocher giving some last minute instructions to his up and coming star. A fantastic image of mays soaking it in while feeling the nerves of finally hitting the big time! A fine image in great shape, this is an important photograph we have never seen before!
