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.
I just realized it has been about 6 weeks since I posted a McCovey Monday post, oops. I haven't been picking up a ton of new Willie Mac cards but I have 4 binders worth to choose from so my only realistic excuse is laziness. My April posting was sporadic (only 16 posts in 30 days) due to a couple factors. I am in a little bit of a work funk due to some changes going on in my department that have resulted in some personal uncertainty. My kids activities have gone crazy between Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Karate and Baseball partnered with my wife's work schedule getting busy with some evening meetings. Perhaps the biggest driver has been watching season 3 of House of Cards on Netflix in the evenings and starting Game of Thrones after getting a free 3 month HBO subscription.
Well, let's get onto the cards. I waited until getting the final card which came last week to show these McCovey cards from 2015 Donruss. I am pretty excited to have the entire "rainbow" - I am calling it a rainbow despite little color variation as I got all 6 cards in the run.
