"Say Hey" to my Birthday Gift To Myself!

Hey guys, Drew back here! In the past few years I've treated myself to a birthday gift for myself, typically using the money I got from my family. I mean, technically I treat myself to gifts almost weekly with eBay, but come on, who wouldn't want a gift every week all year long? Anyway, this year was no different, as I ran to the recent JP's Sports mail order special to get myself a present. Today, it came in, and I immediately started ripping open the envelope it came in. The envelope revealed this beauty:
Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the "Say Hey Kid" himself, Willie Mays! Mays, in my opinion, is the greatest all around player in all of baseball history, with Hank Aaron and Ted Williams trailing by a slight bit. And now, one of his millions of autographs he's signed in his lifetime is about to go up on a wall in my house! Coming with a JSA Certificate of Authenticity as well as the "Say Hey" Memorabilia hologram, this photo was an absolute steal for the price I got it for. I'm also kind of glad I just ordered the photo because I've heard he's been quite grouchy the past few years, and I don't want to ruin the legendary image I have of him because he didn't seem too friendly. I mean, sure, if someone asked me to go with them to meet Willie Mays I'd be all for it, but I don't think I'd miss out on too much if I never got that opportunity.

All in all, this is easily one of my favorite pieces in my collection these days. However, there is one I haven't gotten to share with you that, value wise, is 10 times better. Trust me, you'll want to see that! 

So, uh, Happy Birthday to Me! See Ya!


  1. Cool Stuff Drew!!!
