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.
As I was posting last week I recognized that the next McCovey Monday post would be #44, matching Willie's jersey number. As far as I know, that was the only jersey number he wore during his career. I also recognized that today is St. Patrick's Day and my birthday to boot. Lots of things aligning at once, the only thing cooler would have been if this was my 44th birthday - I am one year off. In celebration of the day I thought I would show a quad of cards for each of the 3 things I am celebrating today.
First up some green cards to commemorate St. Paddy's Day:
Next up, something surrounding my birthday:
Hope you enjoyed my celebration post and a deeper look into my Willie McCovey collection!
