    1917 E135 Collins/McCarthy Baseball Hall of Famers SGC Graded Collection (5). The mid-1910's era saw a limited number of comprehensive baseball card promotions. The sets that were produced now serve as the cornerstone to many vintage collections. Not so with the much scarcer E135 Collins McCarthy sets issued right around the end of WWI and are highly pursued by modern hobbyists needing a vintage fix. The clean and simple design seemed to have served as inspiration for the E121 American Caramel sets that would not circulate for another four years with E135s offered in far fewer quantity. This is very possibly one of if not the earliest reference to a "Baseball's Hall of Fame." The five cards, all HoF group includes: Graded - SGC 40 VG 3: 5 cards, #'s 36 Sam Crawford, 86 Hugh Jennings, 113 John McGraw, 142 Ed Roush and 150 Ray Schalk.
