1986 Fleer Update Will Clark

I am taking a little break from the 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen box break!  So you may have read in a previous post that my all-time favorite player when I was younger was Will Clark.  I had a pretty good collection of Will Clark cards in my younger card collecting days.  When all my cards were packed away I assumed my Clark cards ended up in one of the boxes I used to store all my cards in.  When I dug those boxes out a few weeks ago I noticed my Clark collection was a little thin.  That needed to be fixed so I logged into eBay and started searching for some deals.  I found, bid, and won a few auctions.  In total I was able to secure 19 cards from the 1986-1987-1988 time period for around $6.00.  It comes out to about .30 cents a card when you do the math.  Well a few days after I won the eBay auctions and prior to the cards arriving in my mailbox I got a call from my mom.  She saw a post on Facebook about me purchasing some cards and said she found a binder full of cards in her closet a while back and asked if I wanted it.  Well of course I do!  I asked what were some of the names of the players in the binder.  Her reply was, “it’s full of a guy named Will Clark”.  I had to chuckle a little because the cards I just purchased are in the binder I am pretty sure!  So my Will Clark cards should be arriving in a few days and I will embark on what I am calling The Will Clark Project.  Just my fancy name for collecting as many cards as possible from my favorite player!  I will create a page just for TWCP so everyone can see how I am coming along.

    Are you going for just one of each card, or as many as you can get of each?

      JT,

      Not necessarily gonna hunt down as many of each as possible but if I obtain more then 1 of each I’ll find something useful to do with them.

    Will went to my high school in New Orleans. My uncle taught him (and me English). I’m about to do a big post about MLB players from that school – I’ll keep you posted.
