Thought I would share some of my most recent vintage pick ups for the Giants collection. This post will feature cards from the 1950s.
Two Mike McCormick pick ups from 1958 and 1959. McCormick won the Cy Young for the Giants in 1967 during his second stint with the Giants. He was a 4-time All Star going to both games during the 1960 and 1961 seasons. Mike still works running a Fantasy Camp for the Giants and is one of the greats from those late 1950s and 1960s teams.
Two more 1959 pick ups. This is a set that needs a lot of work. A couple years back when I started collecting Giants, I originally planned on not collecting cards for the sets I had already complete with 1959 being one of those sets. After picking up these 3, still have 9 cards to go including 3 featuring Willie Mays. Wait, you are thinking "aren't there 4 cards with Willie Mays in the 59 set?" You would be correct, my final card to show off is this beauty.
Everyone knows about this great catch versus Vic Wertz in the 1954 World Series. This is one of my favorite cards of all time showing the over the shoulder catch, the turn and throw. Very happy to have this card in my collection.
