I love finding new cards! Every day I do a search on eBay for Cubs cards. There are usually 30,000 or so cards, but I just look at the newly listed ones. I found today's card through one of those searches.
This is the card the Cubs gave away on September 7, 2010, the day a statue honoring Billy Williams was dedicated. If you've been reading Wrigley Wax for a while, you know that Billy is my all-time favorite Cubs player. And it's great that the Cubs honored the Hall of Famer with a statue.
What I don't understand is how I missed this card. I would assume that there would have been several of these on eBay right after they were given away. But somehow, I never noticed the card until a couple weeks ago. But I'm happy to have found it and add it to my collection.
This picture is from the dedication and it has Billy along with teammates Glenn Beckert, Fergie Jenkins, Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, and Randy Hundley.
Here is a better look at the statue.
