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.
Once again this collecting year Willie McCovey has made an appearance in a few new products. This is great for keeping my player collection alive and having the ability to add new cards to my collection.
Today I thought I would show 2 recent pick ups:
The larger card is a 5x7 card that I believe was sold through Topps.com. I picked it up on eBay. There seem to be a ton of these 5x7 cards being produced and I think there are some 8x10s as well. I am not sure how I feel about these. I have picked up a few but I don't feel compelled to seek out every last McCovey out there of these. As you can see in the bottom left corner, these are limited and my copy is 03/49. This card doesn't have the chrome finish nor is it die cut but it still looks pretty nice.
I have realized I have some work to do on Willie Mac's 2016 releases, might be time to do some shopping.
