ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
ONE REMAINING! San Francisco Giants 1B Willie McCovey used a sweeping swing to belt 521 homers and collect more than 2,200 hits. "Stretch" led the National League in homers three times and in RBI's twice, also pacing the circuit in slugging percentage for three consecutive years (1968-'70). McCovey earned National League MVP honors in 1969, 10 years after earning National League Rookie of the Year in 1959. Said Sparky Anderson of the six-time All Star: "If you pitch to him he'll ruin the baseball. He'd hit 80 home runs. There's no comparison between McCovey and anybody else in the League." One of five San Francisco Giants Hall of Famers, Willie was elected to the Pro Baseball Hall of Fame in 1986 and his #44 has been retired by the Giants. And, of course, McCovey Cove is the home of the "Splash Landing" at AT&T Park - monster home runs (like Willie hit) that clear the stands and land in San Francisco Bay. Willie hand-signed this official MLB Baseball right on the sweet spot with his special "HOF 86" Inscription. The ball is available with a custom case that includes old-school Giants logo and McCovey's famous "Stretch" nickname. OR YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN PLATE! The case includes black or mahogany-colored wood base, mirrored bottom, UV-protective glass and ball stand. A great collectible from a classic Giant!
