Default HOF members on card question

Hello,
for those that collect HOF autographs on trading cards/baseball cards, how many of the 323 HOF players are possible to obtain on baseball cards? (ex: 250 HOF members of 323 HOF members possible) Thanks

People right away are going to ask, "What represents a 'card' exactly??" and then down the rabbit hole you go.

Postcards, cutouts from newspapers or product boxes, etc., etc.

thats why I said in my post I said "trading card/baseball card" such as topps and bowman. I thought that "baseball card" would be pretty clear and obvious. but in case it wasnt, I meant "baseball card" such as Topps and Bowman, Fleer, Upper Deck, Score, Donruss, etc

I know you did, but since there are so many contrarians around here, basic logic is often thrown out the window when asking simple questions.

Well, anyone who appeared on a career-contemporary baseball card is possible, since they were alive when the card was issued.

For anyone else, you'd just need to determine who appeared on a post-career baseball card while they were still alive.

I count anyone on a topps size card or smaller like a T206, playball, etc. I do not count exhibits as cards. I probably have about 200 but don't have an exact count,

When you start getting into the deadball era and Negro leagues the definition of "card" comes into play. Does a postcard count? Does it have to be a mass-produced card issued with candy, food or tobacco?

Just about all of the players may have appeared on some kind of card but there are probably dozens for whom a signed card (genuine) simply does not exist. And what about executives, writers and broadcasters in the Hall?

Card collectors, I think, tend to be "set" focused, whereas autograph collectors don't usually think that way.

Hall of Fame and subsets on cards seem to be collected by many collectors. I am working on a 500 HR club on cards. The reason I chose cards was for 24 of the 27 members of the 500 club there are recent cards issued by Topps Upper Deck Donruss etc. Where authenticity has been guaranteed / witnessed. That left 3 I have a 39 play ball Ott and there are Foxx' s mostly on fleer 60/61 but I will hold out for a Goudey or play ball And Ruth for now is out of my price range. Mostly because there are so so many collectors that have Ruth on a card on their want list.

thank you all for your responses. I am referring to just BASEBALL CARDS! not pennants, not index cards, not programs, not lineup cards, not grandmas silverware, not helmets, not balls, not bats, just BASEBALL CARDS! and would love for someone too please give me some guidance on BASEBALL CARDS possible! I know I have seen it posted on this forum before but cant seem to find what the exact number is. Ive searched and searched and searched with no luck finding that thread/post..so would love to know.....how many BASEBALL CARDS would be reasonably expected to obtain by someone that collects baseball cards. so far ive seen/read at least 200 hof members are possible..but are more possible? thank you for your help.
