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 gave a fleeting thought to going after all the Giants but did a quick eBay search and realized the checklist is deep (guys like Marco Scutaro and Jean Machi have figures). The only other 2 retired Giants legends I saw were Orlando Cepeda and Juan Marichal. For now I am just going to enjoy my McCovey Oyo Figurine.
