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.
My last McCovey Monday post showed off a booklet that I have had in my collection for a few years. Today I am showing off my 2 newest McCovey booklets, 2 versions of the same dual relic.
The first is what I would consider the base version of the booklet as it is numbered the highest, 57/59. Not only does it feature Willie Mac but it has a nice big jersey swatch of Juan Marichal. This is a pretty solid design with some seats and a brick wall in the background and nice large pictures in the foreground. What I really like is the home plate shaped relic piece. Also the jerseys appear to be of the old fashion material type.
Here is the inside and outside of the first:
Here is the second booklet, this one is numbered 11/25:
I was able to score the booklet /59 for $5 plus shipping which I thought was a great deal. The one /25 put be back less than the price of a blaster. There is a version /15 out there that I will keep my eyes open but don't plan on breaking the bank for it as I am quite happy having these two in my Stretch collection.
