A few days back I shared my 5X7 Giants team set that featured 9 current Giants and Willie McCovey in a 1952 design. During that same time ordering, I decided to pick up the set of Rickey Henderson cards that (supposedly) reprinted each of his base Topps cards in 5X7 format with black borders serial numbered to 199 sets. I mention supposedly as Rickey's last card from 2003 Topps was not included. As I pulled out my Rickey binders, I decided to scan that card and the Traded cards throughout Rickey's career that were purposely not included in the set. I will lead with those cards:
The set came with this cover card:
I am going to go ahead and show all the other cards without commentary, until the end where I will show the back of the 2002 card as it is the closest to having all his career stats.
Here is the back of the 2002 card, gotta love all the league leaders in red!
Overall I am pretty happy to have this as part of my Rickey collection. I noticed a Willie Mays set was recently produced but so far I have stayed away from. If a Willie McCovey set is produced I will not demonstrate the same restraint.
