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.
Slowly but surely I am getting my card room organized. For the last couple months I have had a medium sized moving box sitting on my floor filled with random items - a couple SLU figures, a box of pins, a couple bobble heads, a few signed baseballs and 2 tubs of oversized and oddball cards. Most of the oddball sized cards fit somewhere in my collection but I didn't have the pages to store them in binders until recently. Over the rainy weekend I started digging through the box and thought I would share a McCovey oddball that I uncovered today.
As a Giants fan, it is always preferable to get items from McCovey in his Giants uniform but I am an equal opportunity collector and also like scoring items from his few years away from the Orange and Black. This collectible is a nice addition to the McCovey binder.
