I was super excited to see one of these cards in the middle of one of the team bags. They have popped up in a few posts around the blogosphere and I am now the proud owner of one:
While I primarily collect SF Giants, I do hold onto cool 49er cards and Wes has started tossing in a few which are greatly appreciated. I sometimes wonder if some of the cards he sent my way inspired me to collect vintage 49ers in 2015, I can definitely say it didn't hurt.
Very sad 49er news that Patrick Willis has decided to retire. Even with his short (9 year) career, I think he has to be a Hall of Famer. His leadership and accolades are as good as any linebacker over a similar stretch. I have heard some commentators say he won't be too challenging to replace but I beg to differ. Maybe his production can be matched but his instincts and leadership will be sorely missed. With this announcement, the Niners go straight to rebuilding mode.
Thanks for some more great cards Wes! I am working on a nice package to send back your way, get ready to add to your certified auto collection.
