I spent this weekend visiting my younger brother in Columbia, South Carolina for my niece's 4th birthday party. As always, when I'm in Columbia, I visit this really awesome antique shop called 'Chic Antiques.' The shop is run by a friend of a friend (it's a small world) and I always like going and saying hello. I always seem to find some good deals while I'm there. I got myself several 1959 Topps for my set (which I will show later), a couple cards for my good buddy Andrew, a 1961 Topps Boston Red Sox team card for Scott, 2 1963 Fleer for another friend and finished up with this amazing signed baseball for a paltry $50 bucks.
Willie Stargell played in the majors from 1962 to 1982, all for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He won the World Series with them in 1971 and 1979 (against MY Orioles). He retired with 2,232 hits, 475 home runs and a .282 batting average. He was the 1979 NL MVP.
Stargell is now my 65th Hall of Fame signed baseball. I'm hoping I can knock off a couple more at next week's card show.
