2001 Upper Deck Hall of Famers Royals to Twins

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.
Nice shot of George banging out one of his 3,154 hits
Not your protopical slugging 3rd baseman.  George is 6th all time in doubles.

Johnson has one of the all-time great nicknames, The Big Train.  He was scary good.
More than a quarter of his wins, 110, were shutouts.

The Big Train and Now Cool Papa.  He looks pretty young here.
Cool Papa was so fast it was said he could turn out the light switch and be in bed before the room got dark.

This is an outstanding group today.  Here's the second of Cooperstown's First Five.  
The numbers speak for themselves.

The greatness continues with two of the game's true gentlemen.

The Eye of the Tiger -- Mr. Tiger
Again, consistency is the mark of excellence.

I love shots of young Harmon with the Senators.  I don't know if I've ever seen this one.  His career total of sacrifice bunts?  Zero.
Harmon was a true slugger.  .256 BA, 573 HR.
