A Look Inside Jim Doyle’s Hall of Fame Baseball (Any Medium) Autographs Set
For most collectors, the challenge of acquiring a signature from every member of the Baseball Hall of Fame would be a lifelong journey. It took Jim Doyle just 18 dedicated months to complete the task. SMR talks with the PSA Set Registry Hall of Fame member about this stunning collection and the journey he took to complete it.

My 1955 Topps Baseball Card Collecting Journey
The 1955 Topps baseball set is an all-time classic. A beautiful horizontal design, a tough high-number series, three Hall of Fame rookie cards and a bevy of legendary players make this set a collector favorite. Owen Randell is a young collector who has a special connection to this set because of old family friends and a gift from his grandfather.
