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 every Monday. Stretch was one of the most feared hitters of all time and I am excited to show off my collection.
Wow, it has been a while since I have posted a McCovey Monday card - right before Thanksgiving to be exact. My posting has been sporadic but I was surprised tonight when I looked back to see how far back it was. I have been getting new McCovey cards, just not posting them up. Today I got a nice 1/1 in the mail and figured what the heck, might as well show it off. I was planning on doing an Opening Day recap post but the game yesterday was too depressing.
Nothing like a nice 1/1 to distract me from my team's ongoing bullpen woes.
