Finally, I Got My Signed Billy Williams Chicago Cubs Mini Batting Helmet. Come Check It Out!!!
For more than 24 months I have been seeking out this item.
And I tried multiple routes – from organized signings to consignment deals to purchasing online to Ebay.
And no matter how I tried to get this going, I failed. Either the timing was not right, the pricing was way too high, or a reason to pass was strong.
Ever since I started building a collection of signed mini-helmets for my collection, I have wanted to add Billy Williams to it. The Ebay search was save in ‘My Ebay’ for more than 24 months. And with it came a lot of over-priced, but beautiful, items for me to drool over.
Many were priced too high, and none of the sellers were willing to listen to my offers.
So, I played the waiting game. And I waited an awful long time…
But, just like most of my ‘big-ticket’ conquests, the wait eventually paid off and I scored!!
I am now the proud owner of this mini-helmet:
Signed perfectly by the Hall of Famer, this helmet is a fantastic addition to my collection. And it rests comfortably next to my Andre Dawson and Fergie Jenkins helmets.
Patience pays off again. And I certainly did not have to risk quality on this one – she is a beauty!!!
