So we took a peak at 1954 and 1955 Topps epic collection of HOFer rookies. Some readers (Mike) pointed out that 1951 Bowman has Mantle, Mays and Ford, maybe even more epic. 1965 also has three, Catfish Hunter, Joe Morgan and Lefty as does 1957 with the Robinson brothers and Don Drysdale. More recently 1983 has three with Boggs, Gwynn and Ryno-mite.
I got thinking what year has the most HOFer rookies?
Not too bad.
In other sports we have some big years as well.
Another guy from that class, Chris Chelios, just retired in ’10 so isn’t up yet. My guess is the HOF voters will be to scared to not vote for him. If that’s the case we will have 5 HOFers in one year.
But that’s not all. USA hockey HOFer Tom Barrasso is also in the set.
All guys are in Score except Randell, he has a card in Pro Set.
If you count traded sets you get 1 more, Dermontti Dawson giving you 9
Are there any sets I’m missing?
