Thanks to having my entire Phillies collection now organized on Zistle, I was able to find instances of most of this year's Hall of Fame hopefuls within my collection. Here is where you can find a few of this year's Hall of Fame misses (and possible 2013 inductees) within my Phillies baseball card collection:
Player (% of Vote) - "Phillies" Card
Jack Morris (66.7%) - 1984 Topps #136 - Strikeout Leaders with Steve Carlton
Jeff Bagwell (56.0%) - 2001 Fleer Triple Crown Glamour Boys #3 - with Scott Rolen and Bernie Williams
Lee Smith (50.6%) - None
Tim Raines (48.7%) - 1987 Fleer #642 - Super Star Special with Juan Samuel
Alan Trammell (36.8%) - None
Edgar Martinez (36.5%) - None
Fred McGriff (23.9%) - None
Larry Walker (22.9%) - 1993 Fleer #715 - Super Star Special with Darren Daulton
Raines also appears on a few Topps Rub-Down/Tattoo cards (from 1984 and 1985) with Mike Schmidt and Walker is featured on the same League Leader card as Bobby Abreu in the 2000 Fleer Tradition set.
Former Phillie Dale Murphy, on the ballot for the 14th year, received only 14.5% of the vote and next year is his final year of eligibility. After that, he'll presumably be passed along to the Golden Era Committee, who elected Cubs great Ron Santo last month. Sadly, Terry Mulholland, on the ballot for the first year, received no votes.
