Launching My New HOF Baseball Auto Page

I figured that it was time to share something I have been working on for quite a while, a blog page dedicated to my HOF autograph collection.  In addition to this link, there will be a link on the right side of my blog.  I have shared a number of cards I have acquired over the last few years to add to this collection and while my original goal was to dedicate a post to each card in my HOF auto collection, I think this is a better way to share.

I have listed out every HOFer by year of induction.  Where I don't have an auto, I have shared some cards that I have in my collection.  There are some players who I do possess base or insert cards of that I didn't add to this page.  I may fill in those gaps over time but right now just the players name and position are listed.

I have limited the page to showing 2 cards of each player as there are some I have more of. I have attempted to share my favorite cards when I do have more than two.

I don't like to make a post without cards so I thought I would share two of my more recent additions that I pulled from 2 boxes of 2015 Leaf Cut Signature History of Baseball Edition.

I feel very fortunate about pulling these two players.  Both were new to my collection and both passed away prior to an influx of autographed trading cards.  Both players sport easy to read signatures and are far from border line HOFers.  Since moving to the KC area, I have had two chances to visit the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and my appreciation for the talents of the Negro League players continues to grow.  You will see on my new page that I bought a collection of Frisch cards at the NLBM and included cards for the Negro League players.  Over time I will probably fill in some gaps of other players with non-hit cards from my collection.

I hope you get a chance to take a look at my page.  You will note that I also include some players that are in my personal HOF (I think they deserve to be in Cooperstown) but have yet to be enshrined.  If you have someone you think I should consider, feel free to make your case and nominate them.  I have a ton of fun looking through these cards and would appreciate any comments.

I am looking for some affordable additions to my collection if you have any suggestions (I recently picked up a Rick Ferrell card and a couple you will see shortly from my COMC order).  Happy Collecting!


  1. Very nice pair of cut autos! I've been wanting to pick up a Cool Papa Bell auto one day.

  2. Wow... what a sweet pair of cut autographs! Very nice pulls.
