The Atlanta Braves Rookie Project

I’m a lifelong Braves Fan and I’ve wanted to collect my team for awhile, and what better way to do that than with Rookie Cards. Theirs a lot of players who have played for the braves in the last 100 years, so I’m going to do it a bit differently. I’m going to try to grab a rookie of everyone who has ever: Been on the Braves and made it to the Hall of Fame, Been enshrined in the Team Hall of Fame, been to an All-Star Game, won a season award, or that may be a fan favorite.

This section may contain some scans from the vintage baseball rookie page of more notable players, but should be rather limited in duplication
