Default HOF RC Collection

Check out my HOF RC collection. A few years ago I decided I'd try to get every HOF RC out there for all players that got into the HOF via BBWAA vote. I'm not yet worried about managers and players that got in via the Veteran's Committee. As of today, I've got just about everyone going back to 1957. I didn't want to bore you with all the 1981+ ones. Plus, this is the Vintage board. I've tried to get only cards that would grade EX or better. Some of these probably fall a little below that, but some fall well above, I think. You ought to be able to click each thumbnail image below for a larger image. Also, be sure to check out my questions at the end.

1957


1959


1960


1961


1962


1963


1964


1965


1966


1967


1968


1969


1970


1971


1972


1973


1974


1975


1976


1977


1978


1979


1980


So again, this covers 1957-1980...

I know I'm missing one. Can you determine which one I'm missing? It's slightly tricky.

Also, I included two that aren't in the HOF. Which two and why did I include them? This one is pretty easy.

Lastly, and I don't know the answer to this one - am I missing anybody?

Thanks for looking!

Thurman Munson and Pete Rose are the two not in the Hall. Not sure who is missing, I'll keep looking. Great collection!

Update: Also missing Orlando Cepeda (1958)

Impressive nonetheless, thanks for sharing.

I included Rose because obviously he'd be in the HOF if not for the ban. I included Munson because a) he very well may have been a HOFer if not for his untimely death... b) there's just something cool about him, his story, etc... and c) 1970 would have had zero representation without him.

Brooks Robinson is the one I knew I was missing. I thought it was semi-tricky because he has a 57 RC, and that was the earliest year I had gone back to.

I should have pointed out I was/am only going after players, no managers. And I'm also focused on those that got in to the Hall via regular BBWAA vote. For now, I'm not worried about the ones that got in via the Veterans Committee.

Mazeroski, Aparicio...

There is a list on Wikipedia that can be sorted by playing years, that way you can see when their rookie cards should be.

Yep, Brooks is the one I still need to get. Cepeda got into the HOF via the Veterans' Committee, and as I responded to a previous post... I'm focused only on those that got in via BBWAA vote right now... I should have pointed that out in my original post.

Mazeroski got in via the Veteran's Committee. Aparacio has a 56 RC. That'll be my next gotta-get card after I pick up a Brooks Robinson.

I am doing something similar, HOF/near HOF/memorable players, feel free to look at my thread, just now getting into the more expensive cards.

Using the criteria you listed, and my personal bias, I believe you should add a 1978 Jack Morris. I am not a Tigers/Twins/Blue Jays fan, I just believe he deserves to be inducted when looking at his career as a whole, specifically at the time he played.

I also think you need a 1962 Bob Uecker, he was not elected by the Veteran's Committee or was a manager, I know his playing days didn't earn him the honor.

Nice cards. I aim to do the same some day.

I wouldn't discriminate against the VC guys though, a lot of times the BBWAA had their heads up their collective arses.

Your missing Tony La Russa in '64 and Bobby Cox in '69. Your probably interested in just players but you should just add them to make it a nice complete HOF Rookie set.

Awesome stuff! I would also consider getting the others like Cepeda, Santo, etc. It makes it more complete. I have been doing the same thing except all PSA graded cause im doing the set registry. Good luck!

Nice collection! There's something about having the raw cards that I just enjoy. I'm curious... why did you go with the Fleer Larkin and the Score Alomar?

Because they're considered to be their best rookie cards, and they are also the ones that PSA picked for the post war HOF rookie set that I'm doing. Just like from this past year, the best ones are the Leaf frank Thomas, the donruss Greg Maddox, and score Tom glavine.

I also get what you mean about liking raw cards. I have learned to like graded though cause it gives them another level of protection since the cases are very sturdy. I also like the assurance that they are original and not tampered with.

Here's another question: how did Jim Palmer avoid the multi-person RC?

Starting in '63 with Rose and Stargell and going thru '68 with Bench and Ryan, all RCs or at least the 14 HOF RCs were all multi-person cards except the Palmer.

Just something interesting I noticed when looking through the cards.

Not sure exactly why, except maybe that he wasn't a top prospect at the time and considered a future star. Those multi person rookie cards were usually reserved for the top young players that year. Maybe he wasn't viewed as one at the time.

I wonder what prices would be like if they didn't go by position and you ended up with Ryan/Bench and Seaver/Carew or Carlton/Perez on the same card.

You'd think they'd be higher but probably not the sum of what the two individual cards would be. Just my guess. Didn't that basically happen with Larry Bird and Magic Johnson in '81? Of course, that whole thing was weird with the perforated thing going on... and they had other cards that year.

That brings up another good question... which multi-player RC had the 2 best talents on it? The first one that comes to my mind is Paul Molitor/Alan Trammell.

Not the best, but a good one: Fisk/Cecil Cooper.

Yeah, apparently Darold Knowles was a better pitching prospect in the Orioles organization at that time.

Molitor/Trammell has to be it. Molitor was first-ballot and Trammell should probably be in the Hall as well.

Ryan/Koosman is impressive as well.

73 Schmidt/Cey is a good one.
