Big HOF pitchers passing on. I have 2nd year cards of both Bob Gibson and Tom Seaver. I have almost every Tom Seaver card...but don’t have the ugly rookie card.

I’m going to start buying all living hof rookie cards of the older guys. I imagine there’s a bump when they pass.

Mays, Aaron, Koufax, Nolan Ryan


$$$$$

Hot: Reggie and Rickey


Affordable and cool though: Yaz, Carlton, Carew,

I think I have rookie cards of 39 HOFers....but also Bonds/McGwire/Sosa/Ortiz/Arod/Manny/Clemens/Schilling/Palmeiro/Sheffield

Picked this up for $10 because I love the new SGC slab. Vintage stuff looks particularly good in the black frame and you can get it at a slight discount compared to PSA.

Might give this card a good run. Should go in the $100-120 range.

I know pricey but being a Cincy sports fan and Bench being GOAT...if was gonna but I’d go higher grade. That’s just me though.

Yeah, I love that card. Glad I could find one at a decent price at that grade. Trying to find a lower grade rookie now. I'm hoping to find a PSA 4 in the $200 range.

A big card. That would be good

Going after the 3 big RCs in the 1983 Topps set (Sandberg and Gwynn next) now, with thoughts of adding all HOFs from that year. Love the design and it’s my birth year.

Technically the Strawberry RC is big in this set given the price it fetches. Not sure if I’ll add it or not since he’s not a HOFer.

One of my favorite years. The year I really got into collecting cards. I 100% had all of these cards wrapped in rubber bands. My Gwynn, Boggs in surprisingly good shape considering. Ripken, Henderson, Ryan cards good too. I love the Super Vet cards showing their rookie year card and the current pic.

A traded card? His 84 topps is his regular rookie.
