    arpsmith - (Willie McCovey)

    Let's give a warm welcome to our newest HOF member, arpsmith. Adam has amassed an amazing collrction of Willie McCovey, with a great mix of both new and old.

    Congratulations Adam!

    Here are my collection’s stats with and without 1/1’s

    Total Cards: 853/1868 – 45.8%
    Total Cards minus 1/1: 848/1576 – 54.0%

    I also have 3 Bobbleheads, a couple posters, several SF Giants programs & books featuring McCovey, 2 Pins and a SF Giants pennant from his rookie year.

    The player I collect is Willie McCovey, HOF first baseman of the San Francisco Giants. McCovey was my favorite player on my favorite team growing up; I saw his last home game and last extra base hit at Candlestick Park when I was 9 years old.

    I started collecting him in the early 90’s before the explosion of card and I can say with confidence I had a much higher percentage of his cards back then than I do now.

    That's a great collection. I remember the first baseball game I ever saw when I was a kid was a replay during a rainout of one of the games he hit two home runs in one inning. Always loved him after that.
