Another addition to my collection of 1967 Topps Autographed Baseball cards. This gem came in the mail yesterday. I purchased it from a auctioneer on ebay and it was delivered quickly. Card #315 in the set, this card was signed by Hall of Fame Outfielder of the Chicago Cubs, Billy Williams. It is signed with a nice blue sharpie. This card is the 438th autograph obtained for the set out of 625 possible.
After accumulating a lifetime .290 BA with 426 homers and 1475 RBI, Billy Williams was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1987. Billy was also known for his sweet swing and consistent production, he hit over 20 home runs a year for 13 consecutive years. He was also very durable and dependable evidenced by playing in 1117 consecutive games. To learn more about Billy Williams' career, go to wikipedia.com.
