HHOF AUTOS - In My Defense

Well it's my quarterly update...ha ha ha.

No, seriously, it's nice to be sitting in front of the blogging keyboard again as it has been to few and far between this year.  A lot of work commitments, a slower hobby cycle for me and just little in terms of pickups have left me putting MHCO on the sidelines for a bit.

The nice thing about this being my very own blog is that I can come back to it whenever I want....and after the past month or so of pickups I think I'm ready to share of of my goodies.

I've got some really nice Linden adds to share - another day though - and some fun Oscar Gamble pickups (local ones at that)...a nice surprise, but I thought I'd start with my hard-signed HHOF autos project.

Phil Housley
Inducted in 2015

I don't know what it is about this card but I absolutely love the looks of it.  Great photo, great design, excellent signature, it's unique to my really has it all.

Sure, it's Phil Housley (a guy that really does not get a lot of hobby attention) but that makes it all the better.  I didn't have to trade much to land it.

This pickup has really given me a jumpstart and I'm looking forward to adding more to the PC.

Chris Chelios
Inducted in 2013

This card has probably been sitting on my desk for a year.  I was really good at procrastinating when it came to posting about this.  Maybe it's because I don't like the looks of this card.  Not the best drawing, not a team I think of when I hear the name Chris Chelios and just not one that I traded well for.

But I thought I'd add it in on this post so that I can feel complete in sharing the project.

With these two, I am at 74 cards.  Taking a look back at my initial HHOF autos post, I stated that my goal was to reach 100.  There is no doubt that this goal is not only achievable, but one that I could probably reach in the 2019 calendar year if I really put my mind to it.

Let's see what happens.

Current Collection - 74 HOF Autos


  1. The Housley auto is a great looking card. Congrats on inching closer to your goal!

  2. Haven't busted hockey packs in years... so I totally missed that Global Chirography set. What an amazing design. I just put in an offer over at COMC on one of them. Really hope the dealer accepts it.

    1. Wow....just took a peek at them myself. They look great laid out there as a lot.

      They're beautiful hard-signed cards. Good luck on snagging yours!
