Tim Raines - 2017 Hall of Fame Class

As promised, some Tim Raines cards. I don't have a card for each of his 23 seasons, but I have most.

1982 Fleer Stamps #39





1985 Donruss #299

1986 Topps Tiffany #280

1987 Star '87 #2

1988 Topps #403
I always liked the 1988 Topps All-Star subset.

1989 Topps #560
I haven't done an exhaustive survey but I think only Topps used his "Rock" nickname on baseball cards.

1990 Topps Ames All Stars #17

1991 Leaf #413

1992 Triple Play #107

1993 Stadium Club #43

1994 Upper Deck #254

1995 Stadium Club #410

1996 Upper Deck #111

1997 Topps #334
The only 1997 Raines card I have. Actually, I only have one or two cards each year for the rest of his career.

1998 Fleer Tradition #437

1999 Fleer Tradition #535

2000 Topps #71

2001 Topps Traded #101
I wish I had the original.

2002 Topps Traded Tools of the Trade Relics
I pulled this from a blaster.

And one post-career card: 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter #272

I suppose I won't be the only person posting Jeff Bagwell cards today. I have 508 Bagwell cards in my collection. Here is a card from each year of his career.

The other two inductees, Tim Raines and Ivan Rodriguez, are also favorite players of mine so I'll give them the same treatment over the next few days.
