My Hall of Fame Project and Collection
Hi guys,

Looks like this place restarted the forums since I last visited, but I'm getting back into the hobby again (Does it ever really leave you?) and figured I'd start this thread to document my progress. Don't know who from the "old" days are still around, but hello to everyone who may still be around!

Who am I? I'm a 25 Year old male, college graduate trying to get ahead and collect cardboard. Hall of Famers are my passion and focus of my collection. My Lifelong goal is to get a rookie card of every member of the NFL Hall of Fame. Players, Coaches, Admins, everyone.

Currently I own 174 of the 273 Members which means I'm 63.7% complete. I also do greats from baseball and other sports, and Braves and Texans players.

I hope to keep this thread updated with great pickups and non-shiny cardboard!

I Figure every thread needs pictures, so here are my 10 favorites in the collection!

RE: My Hall of Fame Project and Collection
Thanks guys.

I do indeed have a Rice rookie, and instead of posting 170 scans, figured I'd make some collages.

Quarterbacks

Running Backs

Wide Recievers and Tight Ends

Offensive Linemen

Defensive Linemen

Linebackers

Cornerback's, Safety's and Kickers

Coaches - These are usually disappointing, Very few had cards issued during their careers. These are what the PSA Set registry considers a "rookie"

Those without a "True" rookie card. Mostly Adminstrators, Coaches and pre-war players that never got a shot to be immortalized in cardboard. The PSA Set registry used to list 1991 ENOR and considered that their “Rookie” card. The “Swell” series came out the year or two prior and was also a national release which makes the “official” rookie somewhat hazy for them. I'd love to find something older.
