Why are there no comments on this excellent list!? Well done, Sir. I love lists like this. Beautiful vintage cards, right through to now.

(One note, you didn't mark Willie Mays as making the HOF. I'm pretty sure he's in...)

Thanks, these were physical hobby projects of mine when I was collecting through about 2012-2013.

The prices of some of those vintage cards do make me kinda glad I stepped away from the hobby before I had an itch to start filling in those pre-1970s gaps of the guys with no nostaglic era or reprint cards.

No clue how I passed over Willie Mays' HOF status like that! *rolls eyes*

Great list! One gets that "oh yeah him" feeling when you see some of the names. 

Oldest I have from your list is 71 Munson.

Thank you sir. Much fun!
