Future Candidates for the BCHOF

Hey guys, Drew back here. I haven't done much of this series at all lately, so I want to get discussion back up. There are many cards that need to make their way into our Baseball Card Hall of Fame, and here are a few that I think will at some point make it in:
1915 Cracker Jack Shoeless Joe Jackson
1916 Sporting News Babe Ruth Rookie Card
1955 Topps Sandy Koufax
1956 Topps Mickey Mantle
1980 Topps Rickey Henderson Rookie Card
1982 Topps Cal Ripken Jr. Rookie Card

1989 Fleer Bill Ripken F**K Face
1993 Topps Derek Jeter Rookie Card
1994 SP Alex Rodriguez Rookie Card
2001 Bowman Chrome Albert Pujols Rookie Autograph
(any parallel)

So, please comment on any card you would like to vote for, or if I left out the one you want go ahead and let me know through a comment and a vote will be cast for that card. It could be ANYTHING, so go ahead and pick a famous card to become the 8th member of the Baseball Card Hall of Fame.

Now, if one card in the comments gets 3 votes it will automatically be elected, but if we don't get enough votes, the ones that have the most votes will go onto a poll and you can vote there. Thanks and See Ya!


  1. I have said it before but 1980 Topps Rickey Henderson is the last hall of famer to have only one rookie card. No hof player since 1981 can say that.

    He belongs in the Baseball card Hall of Fame

  2. Is there a limit on the ballot of how many we can vote for?
    I will go with the 1955 Sandy Koufax and 1980 Topps Rickey. For a future ballot I would suggest the 1957 Topps reverse negative of Hank Aaron... I agree with John's comment, Rickey's 1980 rookie NEEDS to be in the BCHoF.

  3. I am still trying to get the Cracker Jack Shoeless Joe Jackson card in the Card Hall. That's been an iconic card for ages. Get it in there!!!

    I'm partial to the Koufax rookie, too.

  4. Billy Ripken. That card is about as iconic as it gets, even if the player featured on it is not. This is the baseball CARD hall of fame after all.

  5. Co-incidentally, I wrote a post about the 1980 Henderson card that's my vote!

  6. Gotta be the Billy Ripken "Fudge Face" card. That card caused so much controversy in it's day and there have been no other cards in history that have been altered in so many different ways to cover a mistake.

  7. Billy Ripkens F-Face, I have like 5 of those, I love that card and it caused so much contoroversy, gotta be in there!

  8. Well, it was close, but Rickey edged out Bill Ripken and is heading into the BCHOF as the 8th member!


I would love to hear what you thought about this post! Please feel free to leave a comment below. Thank you!
