Dennis of “Too Many Granderson’s” and I have an ongoing trade, he just sends me stuff when he gets it and if I ever manage to pick anything up for him, I send it. We are way lopsided right now. I owe him so much. This time he only sent 3 cards for me but he also sent a small stack of Cubs for my son. He loved those Dennis, big thanks for those. And these.
I’ve gotten a few of these Letterman from Razor from Dennis. I know he gave be a Gordon Beckham as well. I do love these even if they are manufactured, but they are autographed so that makes up for that. I can’t tell you much about Dexter Carter, but I have heard of him so he must at least be decent.
Here’s the big hit though. Dennis sent me a message saying he was heading for a card show and he wanted to know if he should keep an eye out for me for anything specific. I told him not really, I didn’t have any money plus I’m thinking that I already owe him a bunch anyways. A few hours later, he sends me another message telling me he got an awesome card for me and when he gets home he’d scan it and let me know. I was all excited, trying to think what card he got me. I received the scan and was stoked. I’ve been looking for one of these for awhile but they are always out of my price range. What is it? Take a look at this beauty.
A well loved 1961 Topps Billy Williams rookie card. Obviously Dennis got it at a great price because of the condition but I don’t care, this card is still awesome. If I really sat down and made a list of my top 5 wants, I think this would have been at the top.
For those that don’t know or are questioning why myself, being a White Sox fan collect a Hall of Famer from the Cubs, he was my dad’s favorite player. And why this card is high on the list. I used to own it when I was a kid and it was one of my favorite’s back then. So to get it again, Is awesome
