Baseball Card Hall of Fame

Hey guys, Drew back here, I just noticed that last post was my 400th, pretty crazy. My 1 year anniversary is 2 weeks from tomorrow, also ridiculously crazy. Today I fought the stomach bug, and my big plans for this weekend posting wise didn't work out too well. Anyway, this leads to tonight's post, the next induction into the BCHOF, the 8th so far. The Troll got into a contest on the best rookie card of the 80's, so that gave me more possible ideas. Here are a list of some cards I have thought of that should be inducted at some point:

You guys could probably think up more. Please pick ONE card to make it into the Hall of Fame, it doesn't have to be on the list I just made. Leave me a comment on which card makes it as the 8th card in the Hall of Fame. Remember: The card needs 3 seperate votes from 3 seperate people to make it in. If that fails, a poll will be up with the highest voted cards. See Ya!,%20Satchell.jpg

  1. Roy Campanella needs to be in there at some point -- how about '53 Topps?

    Another one I'd like to nominate is 1976 Topps Johnny Bench --that's a great picture!

  2. '89 Ripkin error for sure.

  3. I don't think it should be next, but the 1984 Donruss Mattingly RC should be there instead of Topps.

  4. Hey Drew, the 55 Snider isn't his RC, he was around well before that card came out. I nominate the Clemente from 55.

  5. When is Joe Jackson going to get in there? I am still clinging to the 1915 Cracker Jack Joe Jackson.

  6. I'm going to nominate the 1992 Bowman Mike Piazza RC. This is the top card from one of the most iconic modern day sets. This is one of the few sets where people will chase a second year card from this set over a rookie (in the case of Manny and Pedro to name a couple) since they didn't have any good rookie cards. It's also a sharp looking card. It gets my vote.

  7. I pick the 53 Topps Jackie Robinson.

    I would like to nominate the 71 Topps Thurman Munson for addition to the list for next Time around.

  8. I'm going to sound like William, but Kaline's RC was '54, not '56. Anyway, I vote for the Ryan/Koosman card.


  9. Thanks guys for the input, 2 votes for the Bill Ripken error. Any of you want it in?
