Finally, I Got My Signed Billy Williams Chicago Cubs Mini Batting Helmet. Come Check It Out!!!

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:

WILLIAMS 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!!!

Billy Williams 2001 Fleer ‘Greats Of The Game’ Certified Autographed Baseball Card

Billy Williams 2001 Fleer ‘Greats Of The Game’ Certified Autographed Baseball Card

You will not believe what I paid for this card.  Seriously, you will not believe me…

It has been more than a year since I added a signed Billy Williams card to my collection.  It is has nothing to do with availability, and everything to do with focus.

But, when I saw this one, I was not going to let it get by me.  Especially with the price tag that was on it…

Have a look:

AUTO BILLY WILLIAMS

This card comes from the 2001 Fleer ‘Greats Of The Game’ set, and as you can see it features a perfect Billy Williams signature.

I have always been a fan of this set, as the images used are bright, bold, and lead from the card’s surface.

This card is a great addition to my Billy Williams player collection.  I am thrilled to bring home another autograph of #26.

Oh, as for the price???  Just $6.00!!  I could not believe it – the seller must have needed cash quick because he/she listed a bunch at very cheap prices.  I was able to grab this one before anyone else!!

YES!!!

I am so excited to finally have all three of these cards – I am a little speechless.

Let’s get right down to it and show them off…

Awesome, huh??  Yeah, I know!!

I have got to find a Ron Santo to add to this collection!!!!

Billy Williams 2001 Fleer ‘Greats’ – Autograph!!!

Billy Williams 2001 Fleer ‘Greats’ – Autograph!!!

Roughly three weeks ago I hooked myself up while cruising around Ebay.  I found a seller that was unloading a big stack of 2001 Fleer ‘Greats’ autographed cards – and at very low prices…

In total, there were probably 8-9 cards that I was very interested in.  Ultimately I settled in on 4 of them – and I paid just $22.00.

Card #3 from that buy is this card of Billy Williams.

I see this card all of the time on Ebay.  And never really ready to pull the trigger, my patience paid off as I landed this sweet card for just $6.00.

A great card featuring a nice action of photo of the ‘Sweet Swinging’ Billy Williams, I have to wonder how much more that autograph would pop off of this card if it had been done in Blue.

But oh well, beggars cannot be choosers, and I am so excited to finally add another Billy Williams signed card to my collection!

YES!!!!

Steve Carlton 2001 Fleer ‘Greats’ – Autograph!!!

Steve Carlton 2001 Fleer ‘Greats’ – Autograph!!!

Early last week I hooked myself up while cruising around Ebay.  I found a seller that was unloading a big stack of 2001 Fleer ‘Greats’ autographed cards – and at very low prices…

In total, there were probably 8-9 cards that I was very interested in.  Ultimately I settled in on 4 of them – and I paid just $22.00.

Card #1 from that buy is this card of Steve Carlton.

Sweet, huh??  This bad-boy cost me just $7.00, and his autograph is one that I have wanted to add to my collection for quite some time.

I am very excited about this card – and the other three as well.  I’ll show off card #2 in the next few days…

Enjoy!!
