20 and 21 down, only 4 to go

Recently I was reviewing my 500 Home Run Club list and realized that somehow I had left Eddie Mathews off, meaning that instead of 24 members there were 25. Sorry Eddie. To make up for it I, went to eBay and picked up bat cards of Eddie Mathews ($8.24 total) and Harmon Killebrew ($6.24 total) to add to my 500 Home Run Club Bat Card Collection. I now only need 4 more cards and then I will have a bat bard of every member of the 500 Home Run Club. I have a Rafael Palmeiro bat card coming as a part of a trade, so that means that I really only need 3 more: A-Rod, Foxx, and Ruth.

Barry Bonds 762
Hank Aaron 755
Babe Ruth 714
Willie Mays 660
Ken Griffey Jr. 630
Alex Rodriguez 613
Sammy Sosa 609
Jim Thome 589
Frank Robinson 586
Mark McGwire 583
Harmon Killebrew 573
Rafael Palmeiro 569
Reggie Jackson 563
Manny Ramirez 555
Mike Schmidt 548
Mickey Mantle 536
Jimmie Foxx 534
Willie McCovey 521
Frank Thomas 521
Ted Williams 521
Ernie Banks 512
Eddie Mathews 512
Mel Ott 511
Gary Sheffield 509
Eddie Murray 504


  1. Love this project idea... here's to finding the last three... best of luck!

  2. Hey, I know the Babe Ruth bat may be harder to come by, but I thought I'd pass along this link of a card I found on eBay on sale. It's from a "movie" card set, but that may help in getting the Ruth card a bit cheaper. It's still PSA authenticated:

    Good luck on your last 3, the A-Rod should be pretty easily found. I enjoy the blog!

  3. This is such a great collection, I really love the Killebrew card.

    You saved a couple of tough ones for last, but good luck :)
