I don't know if you mentioned this or not, but for your purposes are you only interested in cards issued during a player's career?

In that context, a collection of baseball cards - and for the sake of this discussion I'm only taking about BASEBALL CARDS! as definied by homerunhiter - a collection of signed baseball cards of Hall of Famers who did NOT have a card issued during their playing career might also be a fun category to pursue.

And then there's another category, Hall of Famers who never played. There may be a few managers who would fall into either category, but when you get to the executives and umpires that's a whole different thing.

Default A Corollary Question

How many Hall of Famers do not even know what a Donruss is, let alone have seen one to sign?

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Default # on cards

If you want to spend the time go to this list
https://natesbaseballcardtradingco.w...reference.html
add on the people from the last few years. subtract all those whose first card was after they died and you will have your answer. Realize that alot are probably non existant- like Mathewson on a card or Dreyfuss, etc even though they had cards out during their lifetime, I doubt they ever signed any
