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 didn't have much time to put together a post today but I am on a pretty good streak of posting daily. I thought I would share another book card, this one a little less impressive than the one last week.
This book card features 5 Giants, 3 HOFers along with Ray Durham and Jason Schmidt but Schmidt is obviously the star and focus of this card. While the booklet features all 5 players, only Schmidt has a swatch, a pretty nice patch swatch. While this is a pretty cool card for a Giants collector like me, it is a little weak to have to add this as a McCovey collector. Now a 5-way patch with these players would offer a little more to get excited about.
I have had this card for quite a while and don't remember what I paid but recall it being more than I really wanted to but a chance to knock another card off the Willie Mac want list was too much to pass up.
