Happy New Year everyone! It has been fun reading everyone's 2013 accomplishments and goals for 2014. I am putting the finishing touches on my 2014 goals and hope to share them over the weekend.
I thought I would kick off the new year with an awesome pickup of a card I have been in need of since the mid 80s when I started collecting Rickey Henderson. A few weeks back I shared the acquisition of a McCovey white whale in a trade with mrhaverkamp and not too long after I was able to seek out a purchase one of my Rickey white whales.
It is a great young picture of Rickey with a big smile, some Bake McBride-like hair coming out from under his cap and a nice gold necklace in the green and gold of the Billy Ball A's. You can also see a nice grease stain from the chips and I wouldn't want it any other way.
It isn't one of my "goals" for 2014 but I do plan on getting my most wanted card for each of the players I collect into the Baker's Dozen list this year. This Rickey would have been my card so I need to scour the list and determine which card I have to go after next.
