The most Hall of Famers, update 17

 
Another Hall of Fame vote has come and gone and so has another debate over the injustice of it all (well, that part never goes away).

The former Veterans Committee -- now split into three committees -- voted in former Dodger great Fred McGriff from a selection of eight names. That's two Dodgers in a row now with Gil Hodges and the Crime Dog!

McGriff's 86 games with the Dodgers probably didn't do a lot for his Hall of Fame case. Actually I'm surprised anyone made the threshold as the Hall is pretty strict with its qualification rules and the committee members got to vote for only three guys each.

But I think it's safe to say now that there are a lot of people -- not just those evil writers -- that don't want to see steroid guys in the Hall. Just an observation. My opinion on this issue is irrelevant and as boring as anyone else's.

So let's move on to something a bit more helpful. Let's add some more years in my research into which Topps year feature the most Hall of Famers!

I'm adding the years 1986, 1988, 1989 and 1995. All those years correspond with McGriff's election. 1986 was the year he first showed up on a major-issue baseball card ('86 Donruss), 1988 and 1989 were his breakout years on cards (the first McGriff card I ever saw was 1988 Topps). And 1995 is the year McGriff played on the champion Braves team.

Here we go, get ready to see a bunch of name lists, many you've seen before.

Wow, that post just gets longer and longer.
 
Here's a look at the sets with the most Hall of Famers with the latest update. 1992 got a boost into the top 10 with McGriff's addition and 1993 moved into tied with eighth:
 
1. 1969 Topps - 51
1. 1983 Topps - 51
3. 1971 Topps - 50
3. 1972 Topps - 50
5. 1984 Topps - 49
6. 1973 Topps - 47
6. 1975 Topps - 47
8. 1970 Topps - 46
8. 1978 Topps - 46
10. 1979 Topps - 45
10. 1981 Topps - 45
10. 1993 Topps - 45  

None of the sets I added this round made it into the top 10.

There is another Hall of Fame announcement next month when the BBWAA election is revealed. I'll do another Most Hall of Famers update then, and I think regardless of who is voted in/not voted in, I'll finish the 1970s and 1980s Topps sets. 

It's getting closer to the end of this series and it's good thing because I'm really done talking about Hall of Fame elections.

I remember McGriff mainly as a Brave. Never thought about him as a HOF candidate but didn't follow him after he left Atlanta. Nice post!

Grateful for the research as usual. I believe McGriff showed up in the 1987 Topps Update (or whatever they called it back then) Set. Would that count or no?

Can't remember the first McGriff card I ever saw... but I imagine it was the 1986 Donruss. I opened some packs of that stuff when it came out and there's a chance I pulled it. And didn't realize until reading this post (and looking it up) that his first regular issue Topps (and Fleer) card was in 1988. Props to whoever decided to add him to that Donruss checklist back in 1986. They were way ahead of the game.
