The most Hall of Famers, update 11


I've been neglecting finishing off adding the 2020 Hall of Fame class to my in-progress list of the sets with the Most Hall of Famers.

I have an excuse. Out of mind out of sight. There was no induction ceremony last month to remind me. I took care of Ted Simmons' addition back in December just because I was so gosh darn excited for one of my childhood favorites. But I feel a bit sorry for making Larry Walker wait. Derek Jeter? I'm half surprised ESPN didn't find a way to railroad an induction ceremony through for a chance to trumpet their golden boy one more time.

But, anyway, I need to update this series with the entire 2020 Hall of Fame class (unfortunately, Marvin Miller is not in any of the Topps flagship sets).

To update with Walker and Jeter, I'll need to add a couple of more recent sets to the project. That means we're not going to be changing the overall Most Hall of Famers leaders because recent sets haven't had the chance to accumulate that many HoFers.

For this segment I am adding the 1998 and 2005 Topps sets.

I'm adding 2005 Topps because I just received a stash of 2005 Topps from Scott, although there were no Hall of Famers in that stack. I'm adding 1998 Topps for no real reason, but I do get a chance to address this card:


While I like this card and always have since I pulled it in one of the few packs of cards I bought in 1998, I am not including it in the list.

Adding retired players to the base set is one of the weird things Topps started doing during the period when I was hardly collecting. But my project here is to figure out the period when the most Hall of Famers were performing on the fields and on our TVs. Obviously, Roberto Clemente was not playing in 1998.

All right, let's see the rundown with 1998 and 2005 added!

OK, a few notes before I get out of here.

1. The addition of Jeter and Walker did not threaten the Hall of Fame leaders, but the early '90s sets are now covering ground. The 1992 and 1993 sets could really be a factor if players like Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds get voted in over the next couple of years. Same with Curt Schilling and Omar Vizquel.

2. I've started using Trading Card Database as a resource for finding Hall of Famers in each set. Even though it doesn't compile names like I do (I'm not including league leader cards or separate All-Star cards), I can easily filter those out and it's helpful overall. But I've already found some weirdness. Deion Sanders is not a baseball Hall of Famer.

3.  I will always go at my own pace with this exercise, adding two, three, four sets at a time. The topic on the set with the most Hall of Famers comes up repeatedly on Twitter and whenever people find out I'm calculating that, I get the sense I'm disappointing them when I say, "I'm not done yet." But they can calculate it themselves if they want it so fast.

4. I'll probably do the next series fairly soon, like in the next two or three months. I want to get some '60s sets figured out and I'm curious about the 1984 set, too.

All right, here is the top 10 so far:

1. 1983 Topps - 51
2. 1969 Topps - 47
2. 1971 Topps - 47
2. 1972 Topps - 47
5. 1973 Topps - 46
6. 1975 Topps - 45
6. 1978 Topps - 45
6. 1993 Topps - 45
9. 1992 Topps - 44
10. 1970 Topps - 43

Very interesting, I have been thinking about how many HOFers are active at any given time, and while this isn't exactly that, it gives a ballpark. Looks like 30-45 HOFers playing at any given year (not including managers etc). I wonder how many HOFers are in the league right now.

I would not have guessed 1983 for the most.

Walker played 10 seasons with the Rockies.

Deion isn't in the baseball Hall of Fame, but he is in the football Hall of Fame. You probably knew that though.

Jim Brown's in the lacrosse Hall of Fame.

Glad the 1983 set still reigns supreme. Not only one of the all-time greatest card designs... but also has a star studded checklist. Gosh... when you factor in the record breakers, star veterans, all-stars, league leaders, and team leaders subsets... I bet there's close to 100 cards that feature a hall of famer in this set.

P.S. That 1998 Topps Clemente is awesome! Second time this week I saw it featured on a blog. I need to grab one for my collection.

Great summary and good selections on the representative card for each year. BTW, thinking back to your post about modern cards and modern baseball, you and several who commented on that post were right. I saw where MLB's opening games were a big success. For games July 23rd thru July 26th there were twice as many viewers as a year ago.
John Bateman said…
The 1984 set might be up there, because they included a card with Bench, Yaz and Perry, which also makes me believe that 1984 Fleer could challenge because i think they had sunset cards of all three.

83 with the most? Would not have guess it. The numbers certainly decline after 93. Or I assume so because well, you haven't completed the work. Sheesh. Have to do everything myself...which means...it shall not be done.

BIG numbers

This is one of those milestone things that used to mean a lot more.Back in my first year or two of blogging, I'd note the milestones that passed and really celebrate them as if they were a big deal. And they really did seem like a big deal at the time:300th post. Wooo!400th post. Weee!500th post. Well that was kind of lame.900th post. You could tell I was already getting sick of coming up with milestone post ideas.But I still like celebrating milestones, no matter what form they take. Not only does it satisfy my compulsion to categorize with numbers, but a nice, big, round number is proof that you've been doing something for awhile -- and if it's worth keeping track of, then probably that thing you've been doing for awhile is enjoyable.So even though I don't flip out quite as much over blog milestones, I've reached yet another one and here I am mentioning it.
I've surpassed 3 million views, you guys.Just once I'd like to witness the odometer turning over…

Card stuff I discovered on the internet

This post was originally going to be called "stuff I discovered on the internet," but I figured that would leave too much to the imagination.Before the internet came along, I discovered cards and card sets mostly through advertisements in the Sporting News or Baseball Digest, or through hobby catalogs that came to my house, like TCMA or Fritsch Cards. Later, I subscribed to Baseball Cards Magazine and found new-to-me sets in articles in that magazine.But I missed so much through those methods. Outside of what was selling in wax or cello packs at the drug or grocery store, that was all I knew.It wasn't until years and years later, when I ended up online like everyone else, that I discovered how much that I had missed.Once I became aware of card blogs, the door was open wider than ever. There were so many sets -- so many sets and cards that often had been issued right under my nose -- that I never knew existed.For example:
I had no idea there were so many box sets from Flee…

Overwhelmed then underwhelmed

Well, welcome back card aisle, you're looking rather ... uh ... disorderly.This was the sight at my neighborhood Target yesterday. As disorganized and scattered as it appears, I can count three different baseball card products (four, if you add the MLB stickers) in just this small crop of the card aisle.This is as many different kinds of baseball card products that I've seen on area store shelves since March. With Covid quarantining and the inexplicable ransacking of card shelves across the country, I've purchased almost no cards in person for the last six months. (On Twitter I mentioned these were the first 2020 baseball cards I had seen on shelves since March, which isn't quite true. I forgot I picked up a couple of scattered packs of Series two a couple of months ago. That's how forgettable Topps flagship is this year).Within that frame are a couple of hanger boxes of 2020 Topps Fire, a half-filled gravity feeder of 2020 Stadium Club and, up at the top, a gravit…
