Billy Williams 1964 Topps ‘Giant’ – Front & Back
I have 7-8 Billy Williams related searches saved in ‘My Ebay’. As I try to whittle down the list of cards that I need to complete this set, I have probably given other collections I am working on more attention. I will work to correct that…
And this is a start.
I grabbed this 1964 Topps ‘Giant’ card a few weeks back. Oversized and looking great, this card is in very solid condition considering that it was issued more than 46 years ago!!!
This is the first time that I have actually seen one of these in person, and now that I have it, I am very happy that I included this card on my Billy Williams checklist.
Here is the front of the card – a close-up shot of ‘Sweet Swinging’ Billy Williams.
And here is the back. Pretty nice, huh? I like what Topps did with this – A great newspaper looking design featuring an article about his 1961 season in which he won Rookie of the Year honors.
I am really happy to have bought this card. It makes an awesome addition to my Billy Williams collection. Now I just have to find a way to store it….

Tino Martinez hit his 300th career home run a very long way from his home ballpark. The Devil Rays and Yankees opened the 2004 season with a two-game series in Tokyo, Japan. Martinez, playing in his first game for Tampa Bay, belted his milestone four-bagger against Yankees’ pitcher Felix Heredia in the seventh inning of the first game on March 30.

My take – I wonder if he got the ball back… 🙂
