I just had to create a “nickname” card for Billy Williams, even if the name itself would be a doozy to fit on ANY card.
So without much choice, I went a created a 1974 card since the horizontal format helped cramming the name in there:
By then Williams was about to move on to the Oakland A’s for the last
couple seasons of what was to be a Hall of Fame career, which ended in
A mainstay of the Chicago Cubs along with Ernie Banks and Ron Santo,
Williams would have been a two-time National League MVP if it weren’t
for a guy by the name of Johnny Bench, who Williams finished second in
voting to in BOTH 1970 and 1972.
Regardless, “Sweet Swingin’” Billy was one heck of a player, smashing
426 lifetime homers along with 2711 hits, 1410 runs scored, 1475 runs
batted in and getting named to six all-star teams over 18-years.
