2001 UD Hall of Famers -- A's to Cards

I really miss sets like this 2001 UD Hall of Famers.  I picked this one up for $8.00 shipped.  Lets look at them all.

I was never a big fan of the "colorful" 70's uniforms but I always liked the A's green and gold.
Reggie never scored 100 runs in a season?

I don't want to get into it but to me Hank remains the Home Run King.
How do you get to 755?  Consistency.  Check out 1959-63.

Eddie is one of only 16 third basemen in the HOF.  POW!  He'll be forever tied with Ernie Banks with 512 home runs.  Quite a one two punch with Aaron.

Wish I could have seen this guy pitch.

Mr. Brewer?  I guess so!  
It sure doesn't show in his stats but The Kid only made 3 All-Star teams.  He's tied with Fergie Jenkins for second least among HOFers behind Bert Blyleven.

Glad this isn't in color because I hate those striped helmets.  Perfect choice of photo otherwsie.
Talk about consistent greatness.  Check out 1964-74.

Great portrait shot of Diz.  I like the mixture of color and B&W photos.
Diz has a short career and you can debate whether he belongs in the HOF.

No debating that this guy deserves to be here.

Maybe not as charismatic as some of his contemporaries but Stan the Man is undoubtedly one of the all-time greats.

Other than "the Mad Dash" in the 1946 World Series i don't have much of a feel for Slaughter's career.

Any debate about who was the all- time best second baseman includes this guy.

More to come.


  1. Thanks for posting these, I'm a fan of this set too.

  2. Love love love this set. Just completed it a few months ago with all the inserts.
