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.
This is the first time in a few weeks I have had a new Willie McCovey card to pursue. With the release of 2012 Panini National Treasures a few weeks back Stretch has a few new cards to add to the checklist. Take a look at this new relic I picked up for under $6:
Unfortunately, this will probably be the only card from this set I will secure. He has 6 other cards, all serial numbered to 5 or less. I lost out on a bid on the 3/3 Prime card with a 3 color patch in place of the grey swatch on my card. I was willing to go to about $40 and it sold for more than $80. If I am going to break the bank it would probably be on one of the button cards of which only 4 exist.
