Collection: Maury Wills 2001 Fleer Greats

Here is my 2001 Fleer "Greats of the Game" autographed card of Maury Wills from my collection. I've already shared numerous other Wills auto'd cards so I haven't much to add about his legacy as a Dodger.

I will note, though, that there is a Maury Wills Museum. It is located in Fargo, North Dakota at the home field (Newman Outdoor Field) of the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks Baseball team. The RedHawks are an Independent League Baseball team in the American Association. It was opened in 2001.

I am sure you're wondering what's his connection with North Dakota?

Well, Maury Wills was a coach and instructor on the team from 1996 to 1997, and worked as a radio color commentator for the RedHawks for many years. I had not realized before today that Maury Wills was on the radio.
