2002 Coaches Collection Billy Williams

Saw this one pop up a couple weeks ago and picked it up for the player collection.

Several nice things with the card...

  • A look at 1970 Topps....the first set that I really went after.  I now that many collectors consider this a dull set because of the gray border.  I like it more for sentimental reasons.  The yellow and blue on the back look great to me too.
  • A little bit of pinstripe at the top of the CC
  • A more modern picture of Billy.  The 2001 season was Billy's last as a coach, so Topps was a bit behind by including him in this 2002 release.  But that's OK...its Billy!

  1. I was unaware of this set's existence; coaches deserve a little more love from Topps & company.
