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.
Last week I popped into the LCS to pick up my bid board winnings and check out the new bid board. The new bid board wasn't too exciting, I maybe threw a minimum bid down on 2 or 3 items. My winnings from the week before were also underwhelming, 4 2014 Topps Update 1989 minis (all of which I had picked up on Sportlots so they are now dups) and a basketball insert of a former USC Trojan who I very casually collect.
The prizes for the $10 mystery packs were picked over and only the basketball packs were active. Overall it was a disappointing visit.. until I looked in the cabinet and saw this card for sale:
Needless to say this turned around a so-so visit to the LCS and made it into a very solid trip. There was a Buster Posey relic in the cabinet too that I may go after next time if it still happens to be available. I have been lucky to pick up some nice Giants cards in LA LA land lately.
