Sharing my passion for baseball cards, particularly Topps sets, rookie cards of current and future Hall of Fame players, and all things Chicago Cubs.
Saturday, January 17, 2009
Welcome to the Hall of Fame Cards blog! My hope for this blog is share my humble opinion on many things baseball card-related. My personal philosophy on collecting is to focus on traditional Topps sets and rookie cards for Hall of Fame caliber players.
Like many of you, I grew up with these sets and I feel that today's insert sets, special subsets and memorabilia cards are beyond the scope (and interest) of the traditional collector.I will provide information on the key rookie cards for some of the most popular current Hall of Fame players, particularly those that have played in the last thirty years. I will also post my thoughts on potential future Hall of Fame players, as I've found that conversations on this topic are sparse.
As a die hard Cubs fan, I will also indulge in some Cubs related facts and fun along the way. I of course welcome all comments and hope to spark some interesting conversations on these and other issues. Please enjoy the blog and share your comments.
To start with, I've included an image of the card that really jump started my collection as a kid. Ryno was my favorite player growing up, and this is Sandberg's 1983 Topps rookie card.
