new best card of my collection

Say Hey!




Willie Mays 2003 Topps Retired autograph refractor numbered 24 (jersey number!) out of 25.
You know I love Topps Retired.. especially the autos.. and especially the /25 refractor autos. I'd been thinking about picking up a certified autograph of one of the greatest ballplayers ever (Hall of Stats has him ranked 4th greatest of all-time statistically), and pulled the trigger on this one.


I'm super excited to have a certified auto of the great Willie Mays in my collection now. Let's celebrate with a song. Here are a couple of my favorite little-known songs that mention Willie Mays in them...

And a mellower tune, if that's more your speed:


Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Ahhhh! It's an ebay 1/1! Willie's number was 24! Too bad you couldn't snag the Christmas card. Regardless, that's a beauty!
