1950s / Willie Mays Apartment - 1954
This photo really is out of the past. It was taken in 1954, the year Willie Mays dominated the National League and would be named its MVP. It shows him in his small apartment in the Harlem section of New York City. The woman in the photo is his landlady/cook. It is slightly misleading, though. Mays was among the highest paid players in MLB in 1954, but while the Giants were in New York, Mays chose to live in Harlem as a simple tenant. When the Giants moved to San Francisco, Mays bought luxurious homes. (He also got himself into big financial troubles because his worldly, socialite wife was a spendthrift.)
