Question to all, just logged onto the Rams HOF registry forum and saw that I was no longer 100% complete. Then saw that 6 new players were added. All six may have played for the Rams for 1 year or 1 year at the end of their career, but none of them are known as Rams. Each guy I saw brought a different team to my mind. I had to wikipedia when the hell the played for the Rams. Tommy McDonald, James Lofton, Bob Brown, Tony Yary, and Bill George. If this is the case Joe Namath needs to be added. Shouldn't this had been brought to vote?

Am I just blowing this overboard, lol?

Thanks,

    I know they bring additions to a vote when it’s a “Best of (your team)” type of set. But that’s a subjective measure where they’d want your opinion. HOF feels more objective in that they’re either in or out.

    I would be supportive of a rule change that each player can only be a part of 1 franchise’s HOF composite.

  • Thanks for commenting. I sent an email asking about it, and they said with the HOF sets they just need to play meet the qualifications of playing there and being in HOF. I agree with you, a player should only being on that teams checklist if they played at a hall of fame level with that team. Should be voted on.

  • I wish you luck. It seems that the common sense part of the registry is long gone. As an Ohio State grad, I once led the Ohio State All-time greats set. It then became a set that you went to Ohio State and had a rookie card set. More card requirements are good for PSA. I have since requested an Ohio State All pros set as a way to get back to the greats and it was shot down by PSA.

  • @BillsGridironGreats honored to have you chime in. I see you up there on a ton of sets. Never stopped to think about the benefit to PSA. Still naive and thinking like a kid i guess, lol. Maybe one day I'll put up a fight to see if we can get a little more inclusive on these HOF sets.

  • Not sure what you do but it's very strange the cards picked. Another example is the HOF RC set, the card chosen for Kurt Warner is the 1999 Pacific that he shares with Tony Horne. Not sure why

  • The Warner card is an easy one - at the time it was his highest priced. We voted on it.

    Well since you're showing a Browns helmet...that makes sense to me :smile:

    Similar thoughts about the Packers Pro Football HOF Registry Set. Recently added was Jan Stenerud, who is better known as a Kansas City Chief, but played 4 good years for the Packers (1980-1983). He is a member of the Packers Team HOF, so I think it is a reasonable add.

    Another that could be added for the Packers would be Emlen Tunnell (1959-1961). Wasn't a huge contributor at the end of his career, but did win a championship with the Packers, and was the first African American inducted in the HOF.

    A more difficult decision would be on Ted Hendricks, who played only one season for the Packers (1974), but had a career year earning a Pro Bowl and 1st team All Pro.

    Truthfully, I'm not sure where you draw the line though, as it's very subjective. I believe objective criteria for inclusion (played for the team; in the Pro FB HOF) is probably the right way to go, even if it leads to the dilution of the set.

    I think it is fine for players to be on multiple sets. Examples from the Packers would be Reggie White (Eagles) and (soon) Charles Woodson (Raiders). Each had outstanding careers with both teams.

  • @rhilbeli is James Lofton on the Packers HOF registry? He ended up on the Rams HOF. I didn't even know he played 1 game with them. Kinda of crazy to add him to the registry.

    Yes - James Lofton's best years were with the Packers. Here are his teams

    As player:
    Green Bay Packers (1978–1986)
    Los Angeles Raiders (1987–1988)
    Buffalo Bills (1989–1992)
    Los Angeles Rams (1993)
    Philadelphia Eagles (1993)

    Interestingly though, Lofton did in fact play ONLY ONE game as a Ram, and had only 4 targets and one reception - Lofton Stats

    I agree that it is asinine to include Lofton for the Rams. His inclusion is not in the spirit of the set, but I guess technically it is within the objective criteria.

  • Is there any way to know which card will be the one added to a HOF RC set prior to the play making it into the HOF? In the old days it was easy one RC basically but now there are so many. My thinking is to plan ahead and get "the" RC for sure fire HOFers before they get there and the card values sky rocket. For example Peyton Manning, everyone expects him to be a first ballot but which RC will be included in the set? Is it usually the most expensive i.e. 2001 Topps Chrome LaDainian Tomlinson vs. his 2001 SP Authentic. Or which 2007 Adrian Peterson RC, do you go with one of the two above or something like his Exquisite Collection card? Just curious...thanks

  • I know what you are thinking. I also am trying to figure that out, lately Topps Chrome, But in the future Panini Prizm vs?
