My favorite player of all time is Hall of Famer Willie McCovey. I have amassed a collection of over 1200 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.
My opinion on manufactured patches has gone back and forth over the past few years. The first ones I recall were in mid-2000s Upper Deck products and I liked them quite a bit. When Topps started inserting them into blasters I wasn't too sure. I still struggle with the fact that one of the three "hits" in a Jumbo box is a Manufactured relic. This card is a manupatch from 2014 Topps Series 2:
For a manupatch, this is a pretty nice card. The photo has been used quite a few times but it is one of my favorites. It comes from earlier in Willie's career and I love the 3 bats. I am a big fan of the Topps All-Star Rookie trophy and it is nice and big on this card. The card has solid eye appeal and I am happy to have it as part of my collection.
