My favorite player of all time is Hall of Famer Willie McCovey. I have amassed a collection of over 1100 different McCovey cards since I started collecting him in the late 1980s. I will show off one of my favorite cards every Monday. Stretch was one of the most feared hitters of all time and I am excited to show off my collection.
I recently picked up this card on Sportlots and while it isn't new to my collection, it was a condition upgrade. Also, the one I had before will now slip nicely into my Giants binder. Here is a look at the card:
Oh yeah, I have been talking about the 1971 Topps set but this card was printed in Canada - it is the O Pee Chee set, here is the back where it becomes crystal clear.
Another nice pick up for the McCovey player collection and this time helps out on the Giants binders as wells.
