OK so this entry probably won't spoiler the Inaugural MLB HOF Class o'36 but it looks purty.

Wow what a category. It is very difficult to beat an inaugural class of any hall of fame. Anyway I didn't have some of the guys from some of the classes I was thinking of but I do have some pretty good cards of the guys from the 2007 MLB Class.

Mr. Ripken and Mr. Gwynn. The Gwynn isn't as sweet as the Ripken but what the heck.
I'll let the pictures do the talking (I'm too lazy to do the titles)

Yep 4/5

For the Odd Ball fans

Plus some bonus stuff.

All these numbered things were from group breaks here at TCC.

And one from another the 2003 class (I didn't have a super card of the other player just regular base sad.gif )

GU burr but 008/250. (I'd trade it for an Auto version of the card)

Steve, you really believe 300 Bradfords are gonna add up to 13,000 Mattingly's in BV? I mean look at even the mass produced ones...a 92 Leaf is even worth a Dollar BV. His auto's book $50+... and his GU are at least $15. They are gonna add up.


You do have some very nice Bradfords. I'm not saying they aren't nice or anything....but I have alot of Donnie Baseball.

I got a final category ready. I guess I can post it even though we haven't heard the results from the HOF Class round.


OK so the final category, might take a while to find candidates for might not. Look-a-likes "Separated at Birth". Show
- 2 cards 1 vintage 1 modern (current player) of two unrelated players that resemble each other. No fathers/sons uncles/nephews
- The resemblance must be from their physical features/looks not from the way they are running or the fact that they have a Hitler mustache with Harpo Marx curly hair.
- Should be from the same sport. Different sports are allowed but its more fun to use the same sport.

Those "separated at birth" comparisons that entertainment magazines and websites like to do rely just on what the person is doing or how they are posed, they rarely actually look like each other.

I forget when it was I thought "Hey this guy looks like this guy" but I thought the resemblance was uncanny. In side-by-side the resemblance isn't as uncanny as I originally recalled, but what the hey.

The fact that they are both catchers and both played for a Washington team is purely coincidence. wink.gif

Well, I think the HOF class went to Steve hands down...

Ace 1 3 3 1 3 3 3 1 3= 21
Lew 3 3 1 3 1 1 3 3 1= 19
captKirk42 1 3 1 1 1 1 1 1 1= 11

Nice category to finish it off! Because of the "importance" of this round though.. I am going to open it back up to voting!

Looks like we are still awaiting a submission from Steve!
