My Billy Williams ‘White Whale’

Ah, the 1965 Topps Billy Williams card.

This card has eluded me for some time.  The design screams old-school and I love all of it!!!

I have wanted to add this card to my Billy Williams player collection for almost a year now(since I got back into collecting). 

And truth be told I can buy it right now on Ebay for a pretty decent price, especially once you consider that this particular card is 44 years old.  Currently there are 3 auctions and 7 stores offering up this card.  I could own this card with just a few easy and effortless clicks of the mouse.

But, for me it is more of a personal quest.  You see, I have never seen one of these ’65 beauties in person.  NEVER.  EVER.  Of all of the baseball card shows and baseball card stores I have frequented both in my current collecting years and in my past, this card has eluded me.  And it’s not for a lack of effort either.   The most common question I ask at a show is ‘Do you have a ’65 Billy Williams for sale’.  And each and every time the answer is the same – ‘Sorry, No.’

So, my quest will continue.  I will end up with 1 at some point – I am certain of it!!!  When it is meant to be, it will be.  Until then I will enjoy my hunt and keep my eyes peeled for my true ‘White Whale’!!!!
