My favorite player of all time is Hall of Famer Willie McCovey. I have amassed a collection of over 1300 different McCovey cards since I started collecting him in the late 1980s. I will show off one of my favorite cards most Mondays. Stretch was one of the most feared hitters of all time and I am excited to show off my collection.
I just picked up my first Willie McCovey 1/1 in quite a while. In the days prior to me keeping to a budget and prior to my collecting interests expanding beyond some set building and 4-5 player collections, I was going after each and every McCovey that came onto the market including the super rare cards. I saw this one come up, put on a reasonable bid and ended up bringing it home.
This card brings my McCovey collection to a staggering 1317 different cards!
