Willie McCovey And His Hall Of Fame Plaque

Willie McCovey And His Hall Of Fame Plaque

Willie McCovey was voted into the Baseball Hall Of Fame in 1986.  He was elected on his first ballott and received 346/425 votes cast in his first year of eligibility.

His Hall Of Fame plaque offers a pretty decent bust that bears his likeness.

The plaque reads:

“Top left handed home run hitter in NL history with 521.  Second only to Lou Gehrig with 18 Grand Slams, Led NL in homers three times and RBI twice.  NL Rookie of Year in 1959, MVP in 1969, and Comeback player of the year in ’77.  Teamed with Willie Mays for awesome 1-2 punch in Giants’ lineup.”
