All Years & HOF Project

Recently I decided to start working on a new project! It's to collect at least one card from each year. And preferably of a Hall of Fame player (with the occasional HOF Manager). Right now the main focus will be on a Topps baseball card; but from time to time I will branch out into a different maker, especially for the older cards. In the list below, if the card is not Topps I'll include the maker.

  1. So many great cards on this post. That Ted Kluszewski card though is awesome! It sort of personifies the type of hitter he was.
