The two newest members of the Baseball Hall of Fame were revealed on Sunday night and it’s a relatively easy hunt for their Rookie Cards if you want them — you’ll just need to track down a 1978 Topps baseball card set.
That’s where you can land the RCs for Detroit Tigers stars Jack Morris and Alan Trammell, who are Cooperstown-bound next summer. One won’t cost you much and even can be found in bulk, while the other will be a bit tougher (but not all that bad) due to Trammell sharing his RC with Paul Molitor, a Milwaukee Brewers star already enshrined in baseball’s most-elite club.
Since they’re on multi-player cards, Morris and Trammell didn’t appear on the O-Pee-Chee set that year — that simplifies things a bit — but there are still two other Topps cards you’ll need to collect ’em all.

A new baseball season is nearly here with the first spring training games set to air later this month and that’s when we’ll see the newest players on their new teams.
And many of them will be wearing new uniforms — well, at least new caps.

The Rookie of the Year award winners Now have more cardboard.
Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager and Detroit Tigers pitcher Michael Fulmer picked up the NL ROY and AL ROY honors on Monday night — and tonight they pick up the Topps Now honors.
Seager is the first player to have a game-used jersey Relic in the line, while Fulmer will be signing autographs for his award-winner card in the program.
The legend of “Shoeless Joe” lives on.
A PSA 8 copy of Joe Jackson‘s 1909 E90-1 American Caramel card rocked the auction block on Sunday morning and, along with one other high-grade icon from the past topped a combined $1.1 million in an SCP Auctions sale.
The Jackson sold for $667,189 and is one of only two cards to receive that grade and none are higher.
”We are thrilled with the results of our biggest summer auction to date,” said SCP Auctions Vice President Dan Imler. “The market for ‘best of the best’ sports cards and historic memorabilia continues to show incredible strength.”
Somebody is going to pay dearly for this managerial meltdown.
The sweatshirt and cap worn by Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus on Monday night have hit the auction block via MLB Auctions to benefit the Tiny Tigers tee-ball program funded by the Detroit Tigers Foundation.
And, so far, it looks this one will pay for a few extra tees.
Today’s apparently National Pizza Day, and, while it’s totally one of those meaningless Internet holidays, it’s still real.
And so is this baseball card.
In 1988, the Detroit Tigers’ 1968 championship was revisited in a forgettable card set that included this “Avoid The Noid” coupon card. If you don’t remember The Noid — or past pizza sets — keep reading.
Buzz thought he had seen it all when it came to game-used memorabilia until he visited MLB Auctions on Sunday night to find this.
It’s a snack container straight from the dugout of the Detroit Tigers this past season and it can be all yours.
How much? We’ll get to that … but first the details.
He’s a real-life Crash Davis and just like the big-screen journeyman the career of former big-leaguer Mike Hessman is over.
If you don’t know Hessman, it’s OK — you’re probably like most of us. You might have one of his baseball cards long forgotten in a box somewhere — from back in the days when he was a rookie for the Atlanta Braves and a guy who finally got his shot after eight seasons in the minor leagues.
That was back in 2003, but he’s still in the news now.
