Default HOF Topps Rookie Cards who collects them?

HOF Topps Rookie Cards (Baseball) who collects them? Letís see them. If you collect them do you prefer them ungraded or graded? PSA or SGC?

Sorry I read to fast

Did not realize it was a Thread for TOPPS

Please disregard my stupidity in reading to fast

collect them as long it is in my collection focus where I can but in pre WWII. Only have a few not sure if this is the right spot even though they are pre-1980 cards.
I have Roger Hornsby, Joe Jackson, and Babe Ruth.

Would love to eventually get a Tris Speaker, a Lou Gehrig(prices to high for me at moment), Cy Young, Ty Cobb etc.

I have a few Topps rookies in my collection. Mostly guys from the mid 1950s. Banks, Killebrew, Aaron are the notable ones off the top of my head.

I got a handful of autographed (mostly TTM and hopefully authentic) rookie cards that are cool to see...

Thanks Phil.
I was lucky with those 2 as both were gifted/included in the collection of 148 my father gave me over 35 yrs ago now.
Quite a few RC's and HOF's in the 52 set but not many RC HOF's.
Hoyt Wilhelm and Eddie Mathews are 2 others I currently don't have.

Some great cards in here! This thread is more in my wheelhouse than the pre-war stuff. I'll try to post some of my HOF rookies when I get a chance.

While I have a lot of Topps RC's, the rookie aspect alone is not my focus. I like nice cards of HOF'ers, and including early cards - but I guess like for me the best example so far is I have not been able to pull the trigger yet on an Aaron or Clemente RC - because I already have nice, but dramatically cheaper versions of their 2nd year cards. And in this case, the 2nd year cards for both players have the exact same portrait pictures as used on their true rookie cards. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have them eventually - but they aren't exactly at the top of my list due to that reason. Another good example for me as a Cubs fan is Ernie Banks. I don't have the '54 Topps, but the card I do have and just absolutely love is his '55 Bowman. That's good enough for me.

I guess my nicest Topps RC right now would be the '68 Ryan / Koosman.

I have every topps HOF RC from 1960 to 1990 with the exception of Tony Oliva. Havenít been in a rush to get that one but Iím sure Iíll get around to it.

They are all ungraded and most are lower grade although not surprisingly they get better as the years go on.

Itís not that expensive to do. The Seaver is pricey but all the others can be had in modest condition for 300 or less.
