Default Nice HOF auto set?

I'm trying to find a nice baseball set that meets these requirements:

1) An auto or auto/jersey set featuring HOFers

2) A substantial number of cards (40+ preferred but not essential)

3) On-card autos

4) SPs or numbering is fine, but something where I can reasonably expect to actually find the cards I need

Any help is appreciated.

National Treasures has two subset featuring 50 HOF on card autographs numbered to 10 or to 25, but they have no logoes...

2012 Panini Cooperstown Signatures is a 100 card set with I think 95 of them being on card auto and all of them being numbered.

i agree with this set, they look really nice to, only problem is you will miss some of the hof's who have died that are in the 2000 2001 greats sets (mathews, killebrew, kell, snider, spahn, monte irvin etc)

Pick and chose from 1999 SP Signature. Nice mix of retired and deceased hall of famers

My 2 cents as a HOF auto dealer...

Cheap but nice... 2005 UD HOFers

Classic in look... 2000 GOTG

Cool look and relatively cheap... 1999 Fleer SI GOTG

Bang for your buck... 1999 SP Signature

Others worth trying...

1997/8 Donruss Signature Series
2001 GOTG
2002 GOTG
Any year of sweet spot
2000 UD Legends

I would also recommend 2000 Greats. For something not mentioned, another decent one is last year's Historic Autographs "Legends of the Hall". These are all Hall of Famers autos on PSA slabbed Hall of Fame Postcards.
