Last year was a great year for my collection. I completed my first 2014 Goal within a week and day of making my list by adding a Goose Gossage Pirates autograph. This year, I followed suit and completed my first 2015 Goal within a few weeks of the new year.
Following the same pattern as last year, I sought out a new Hall of Fame autograph to add to the collection. There's a long list of Pirates in the Hall of Fame that I currently don't have, but 1961 inductee Max Carey can now be crossed off that list.
Carey finished his 19 year career with a .285 batting average, 2664 hits, and a patent for sliding pads to protect your legs and hips when sliding. His numbers don't jump off the page, but during a ten year stretch he was one of the best in the game patrolling the outfield.
