Comments: My first Willis was a T206 purchased in March, 2003 on eBay. In May, 2004 I upgraded to a GAI 6.5 after a purchase from E&L Sportscards (Larry Gladstone). In May, 2005 I replaced the T206 with a PSA 8 1906 Fan Craze card via eBay. Then, in September, 2005 changed my mind again when I found a E95 Philadelphia Caramel Willis card graded PSA 5 through the Net54 board - the same seller who sold me a E95 Bender a few months earlier.

UPDATE: In Dec 2015 I found this PSA 7 listed on eBay but have not been able to pull the trigger.  Great card - wish I could do it:
