My Ongoing Baseball HOF Relic Collection

Just wanted to share my baseball hof relic collection. 90% of the cards were personally pulled by me going back a long time ago up until now. I know I've got a long ways to go but this is something that has been pretty fun. There's still a lot of players I'm missing that have relics available and I know some are hard to come by but I'll keep adding as I can. It gets expensive. It's going to take me the rest of my life if I can get close to getting at least one card of everyone. Cards are alphabetized by last name. Hopefully you can zoom in on some of the pictures to get a better look. I've got a lot of favorites in here as quite a few have sentimental reasons too. And yes I know Shoeless Joe Jackson isn't in the hof. I just wanted to include him. Enjoy.

    Those are so cool and a great thing to collect.

    I always love the Blyleven in a Twins uni photo.

    Very neat collection. Are they all game used relics too?
    Have you collected any based on HOF suspicion such as Trout/Ohtani?

  • amp0909amp0909 Posts: 80 ✭✭✭

    Yes I also have a few set aside in hopes of future HOF induction.

    Amazing theme and collection! Thanks for sharing. Who are the top ones you still need and how many are left to obtain? Looking forward to your posts as you chip away at this.

    Now that I see this collecting theme, it would be amazing if Topps did this as a unified set with consistent design over a number of years. What a cool concept.

  • Brilliant Greatness !!!! Yep.. coolness.

    It's a mixture. Early cards specify game used. The newer stuff says not from any specific game

    I think I still have about 80 more inductees to go. Not everyone has something available. I want to obtain them showing in their mlb uniforms but not everyone is shown. Panini has a lot of the guys but of course they aren't approved by the players association so they can't show logos. But if that's the only option I have then so be it. Some cards rarely come up that I'm looking for.

    What a great idea. That is a lot of work,and sure is an interesting approach. Best of luck going forward in your search to finish your goal.

    Definitely a cool concept.
    I actually like the different designs and formats of the OPs collection.
    I find it more interesting and appealing.

    Love the Tobacco Card theme with the vintage players. Quite the large
    number of Ripken Jr. My favorite player.

    He was my favorite player too. Luckily I was able to pull a few of his cards.

    Great collection. I particularly like the Evers, Gehrigs and Cobb. I really want to get one of the Josh Gibson bat cards someday. He doesn’t have a single playing days card and I really want one of his cards in my collection. Congrats on pulling so many of those yourself. Must have been exciting! Thanks for sharing.

    The cards are so fun to pull yourself. It's always nice to pull a card that you're needing to check off the list. I'm going to have to make a lot of purchases as pulling the remaining guys is probably not going to happen. It will take awhile though. Josh Gibson is one that will take awhile to aquire as he is pretty costly.
