1954 Photograph of Willie Mays along with Jim Rivera and Vic Power as the trio is playing winter ball in Puerto Rico to stay in shape. Mays was coming off a World Series championship and making the most famous catch in baseball history just days earlier and had reason to be all smiles. An exceedingly rare image in Santurce uniform that we have never seen before, the image is clean and stamped on the back by the Associated Press.
