Charlie “Hoss” Radburn was inducted to the MLB Hall of Fame in 1939. He was a dominant force for his time and played 3 seasons for the Boston Beaneaters (Braves). I’m super thrilled to add him to my collection. Old “Hoss” didn’t have a traditional rookie card. One of his earliest depictions on anything is the 1944 Albertype postcards. It’s kinda hard to track down a postcard from 1944 never used and in good condition, but I did it, and found one graded at an SCG 60 to boot!
Dave Bancroft was inducted to the MLB Hall of Fame in 1971. He’s a Pre-War rookie, which makes his rookie card a bit of a “Debate” Since he was a Hall of Famer who played and managed 3 seasons with the Boston Braves – I am thrilled to add him to my collection. I picked up his 1926 W-512 which will serve as his rookie card for me, Since he has no “official” rookie.
For the Braves Project
Eddie Stanky was an All Star for the Braves back in the day, and Mike Stanton was a fan favorite of the 90’s Braves. Both guys are welcome additions to the Braves collection.
For the Texans Project…I’ve been knocking them out! knocking out 13 players!
Nick Novak served as our kicker in 2015 & 2016 and Shane Lechler has been our Punter since 2013. He had a hell of a career with the raiders, and may one day be a Hall of Famer. Nick Martin was the Texans starting Center in 2017 and Andre Hal has turned into one of our more dominant starting Safety’s and defensive players.
C.J. Fiedorowicz has been with The Texans for four years and the starting tight end for 2 seasons, due to concussions, his career may not be much longer than that. Benardrick McKinney has been our starting inside Linebacker and a bright spot on our defense for the past two seasons. Alfred Blue has been a quality change of pace back for 4 years, appearing in 56 games while starting 14. Tom Savage started 9 games for us, mainly after Deshaun went down in 2017. Quintin Demps was our starting Saftey in 2014 and 2015, and did a great job at it.
Greg Mancz has taken over as our starting Center. A.J. Bouye was a dominant Nickel corner for us, before bolting for the Jaguars for more money. Ben Jones started on our line for 4 seasons, before bolting for the Titans. Joel Dreessen gave us 4 solid years at tight end.
