Those are some sweet photos of the Say Hey Kid... Just begging for someone to make custom cards of them.I used to enjoy watching "What's My Line" on GSN, I wish they'd bring that back.
There are a ton of the shows/segments on YouTube, at least the mystery guest parts. I use them now and then here.
Thanks for this post. As I discovered back in 1967 (when first reading the back of this card), Mays was born 3 days after my father, and 6 years to the day after my uncle (both now deceased).
Jim--Baseball has seemingly always been something passed down from father to son. Love hearing about the connection. BTW my Mays is from a pack I got in 1967. Do you still have the one you mentioned?
I had all the series 1 thru series 6 cards during 1967 (except for the Cardinals Team card). Most of the series 1 thru series 6 cards I have now are the ones I got that year. A few of the more "beat" cards have been upgraded to better versions in the last few years. (These were probably from series 1 & 2, which I mostly acquired from other kids via flipping, since I didn't start buying cards until May of that year.) I'm pretty sure the Mays (& Mantle) cards are my originals. I know of some I specifically replaced (Luis Aparicio - because the back was written on, and Alvin Jackson - because there was a hole worn through the card, over his face; a few others also).
Very nice dedicaation to Mays. You found some really great images to use!! Good Work.
Thanks Brian. Still arguably the best ballplayer ever.
Fantastic Willie Mays stuff. I still find myself singing "Say Hey! Say Who? Say Willie!" when I think of Willie Mays. And the What's My Line clip is also gold, not to mention that last picture of Willie and Aaron...I have never seen that one before.
Did you guys see the Willie Mays interview with Bob Costas on the MLB Network last year? It was a great show.
