Default Show Something That Could Be in the Baseball Hall of Fame

I wanted to start a cool thread. "Show something you own that could belong in the Baseball Hall of Fame". It could be a card, an autograph, or a piece of memorabilia. It also gives you the chance to brag or show off something from your collection. I'm not really interested in seeing 2-3 pieces, but rather just that one piece that totally WOULD NOT BE OUT OF PLACE in the Baseball Hall of Fame. After some time, I'd like to start a poll and see who the top vote-getter is. Also, please feel free to (light-heartedly) put down or make fun of those pieces in which you deem not worthy. It will be encouraged here! I'll try to take a picture of something I have, that I feel is worthy, when I get home. Otherwise, let's see some pics!

This item should qualify as something that could be in the Hall of Fame. It is a cabinet photo of Christy Mathewson taken by Benjamin Falk around 1904 (not certain about the date, might have been earlier). The image was used on one of the Matty W600s, Sporting Life portrait and 1915 Cracker Jack. You could say it was a cornerstone of my collection. Loved that photo. I acquired it from Mastro Auctions several years back. Subsequently Hauls of Shame alleged it had been stolen from the HOF. Long story short, this allegation proved to be correct and I returned it to the Hall. Having my name alongside in the mud with Bill Mastro, Doug Allen and Peter Nash does not count as one of my best hobby experiences. 'Nuf ced.

I could see the Hall being interested in this. Here is a Type 1 original photo of the moment Joe D extended his historic streak to 56 games:

Great character David! Wonder how many would have done the same?

Jackie signing with Montreal. My favorite piece. I could imagine it part of a display, despite my garbage scanning crop job.

Here is the only known program from Jackie Robinson's all star tour which was done in the late fall of 1946 - just before he broke through in 47- the tour features a team made up of both negro leaguers and white minor leaguers from the montreal team. Probably the first time that an integrated team played a white team in a major league park

This is a picture of Mickey Mantle on his first pro team, the semi-pro Whiz Kids, from 1947 when he was 16 years old. Mantle and a few of the other players have signed the picture (the other sigs are barely legible). The condition is a bit rough because it is an original that belonged to one of the kids in the picture, Guy Crow, who was the bat boy (left end of the right bench).

I've written about this before, but seems interesting to me. Worthy of a local hall of fame and depending on your point of view, not too far out of place in the real one.
