A TRUE WHITE WHALE – 1966 Topps Billy Williams!!!
I have been seeking this specific baseball card out since the late 1980s when I moved to Chicago from Florida. And now, in 2012, I have finally added one to my collection.
And while I took a very lengthy break in collecting during the time between, I can finally say that this 25-year quest is over and a 1966 Topps Billy Williams card is mine.
The card is probably considered to be in VG condition, but I am ok with that.
Have a look:
To me, it is perfect – and I LOVE IT!!!
The card is a short print from the 1966 Topps set. And when mint, these beauties sell for a pretty nice amount.
When I got back into collecting cards in 2008, I made finishing my Billy Williams collection one of my first goals. Now, four years later, I am a bit closer to that realization.
I wanted to show you how well these sell – a lot of vintage collectors really like the 1960’s Topps short prints, and demand for quality cards is still very high.
Here is a look at some completed auctions for the same card:
I think that I got a really good deal for mine as I paid just a shade over $13.00.
Thanks for reading!!!
