HOF Project

This page will show case the last base set Topps card of Hall of Fame players. It has limitations and faults because for a number of players Topps didn't produce a final card in the base sets for guys who played part of a final season. It will only consist of players who played for Major League Baseball. And my emphasis is on base cards, so Tim Raines' 2002 Update set falls outside of the scope. This page is organized by the year of the card with the year of induction in parentheses after the players name. In my paged cards, though, I'm sorting them by year of induction. I think seeing them both was is fun.

  2. Love that George Brett card. Figured it would be my favorite of all and it was. And so many guys with random teams. Santo, Raines, Alomar, etc.
