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 was trolling Sportlots the other day with a little extra money in my account and realized I didn't have any Giants or players I collect from that set outside of the Vida Blue hits I had bought on eBay. I had picked up a couple packs but didn't pull anything of note. I did a search and realized that in addition to Vida, there were 2 Giants, Bobby Thomson and my favorite player, Willie McCovey. I found a seller who had reasonable prices and must have broken quite a bit and found 3 different Willie Macs for my collection:
The same seller also had a trio of Bobby Thomson cards I picked up:
My next Vida Blue update will show the final 3 cards I was able to pick up from this seller.
