Default My Humble HOF Collection

You can see a card of each Hall of Famer -- excluding Schuerholz through the link below, although many are not contemporary issues.
It's a constant work-in-process. I'm always upgrading / downgrading and searching for contemporaries that I'm missing.

Here is the full pic and some info I found as I was looking, wondering, if a movie had ever been made about her.

Default Effa Manley

Here's my 1930's Type I Press Photo of Manley:

The 1996 Legends of the Negro Leagues Playing cards Q of Hearts that Paul shared is a very tough card to find. There are always the Yellow HOF Plaque postcards to fill any gaps in a HOF collection.

HOF "Earliest" Collection (Ideal - Indiv): 194/323 (60.1%)
1911 T332 Helmar Stamps.................: 178/180 (98.9%)
1914 T330-2 Piedmont Art Stamps......: 109/119 (91.6%)
1923 V100 Willard's Chocolate............: 111/180 (61.7%)

I am not really a fan of collecting post-career cards of a given HOF player because I simply think of a "card" of a player as being issued when that player was active. For those of us who collect HOF players, at least from my perspective, that is obviously problematic since not everyone has a period card. I have no problem at all with period postcards because I'm not all that worried about whether or not its regional, national, or whatever. If exhibit cards are considered to be cards, then I'm good with other postcards being cards as well.

If the player doesn't have a period card or they are so few that I can never hope to achieve one (Frank Selee, Pete Hill, Al Spalding, and Willie Foster come to mind), for collecting purposes I vastly prefer period photos, etc., to post-career cards because I personally believe that is more authentic and more faithful to at least my collecting goals. For Spalding, I go to baseball currency. I am not a huge fan of team photos for my HOF collection (although I love them otherwise), even if period, unless I can't find anything else. Then I am, lol. There is certainly room for lots of debate on this issue and, as has been said several times before, you collect what suits you and what makes you happy. There is no right or wrong. Best,

Post career cards don't do anything for me. If you're okay with those, just find a picture on the internet, some cardstock, and print your own.

As for where to draw the line: wherever​ you want. My collecting goal is one of everyone in the hof as a player (in practice restricted to MLB players since I can't afford negro league cards). The reason is simple and idiosyncratic to me. I'm not interested in managers, umpires, or executives. If you think managers are interesting, add them to the list.
