Page 3 of my Hall of Fame Binder brings us the rest of the class of 1939, which included nine players overall. Cap Anson, Charles Comiskey, Buck Ewing, Old Hoss Badbourn and Al Spalding were all elected by the Veterans Committee.
Eddie Collins, Wee Willie Keeler and George Sisler were inducted along with Lou Gehrig, who hung them up earlier in the same year, by the Baseball Writers Association of America.
2012 Panini Cooperstown, #21 -- Charles Comiskey
2012 Panini Cooperstown, #11 -- Buck Ewing
original post I'm looking for variety on each page. I'm currently on the lookout for a new Ewing or Comiskey to spice things up a bit!
2011 Topps - 1934 Goudey Reproduction Insert, #CMGR-24 -- Lou Gehrig
1980 TCMA Baseball Immortals, #23 -- Willie Keeler
BaseballRefence.com page Wee Willie was only 5'4" and 140 pounds. Yes, folks, that's two inches shorter and twenty-five pounds lighter than Jose Altuve.
1980 TCMA Baseball Immortals, #24 -- Charles Radbourn
Twitter account. I followed it for awhile, but when things become too politically charged (funny or not) I tend to bail ship. I did enjoy when he mocked starters for not pitching long enough to qualify for a quality start. Radbourn, after, threw 73 complete games . . . in one season!
2010 Topps - Vintage Legends Insert, #VLC-30 -- George Sisler
2009 TriStar Obak, #93 -- Al Spalding
1874 he was credited with 52 wins, which is 21 more than the number of batters he struck out. It was a whole other game back then! Oh, he's also known for starting a sporting goods company and the thus the reason for his inclusion in the 2009 Obak set.
1976 Topps - TSN All-Time All-Stars Subset, #342 -- Rogers Hornsby
stretch of seasons during the early to mid 1920s was just unreal. For my money, he's still the best second baseman of all-time.
Lots of classic names in this post. I hope you enjoyed it!
