    I suppose every team has had their great announcers, but unless you follow the team or live locally, you may never even have heard of them. I bought a TTM card of Milo Hamilton on ebay for example. I believe he was an Astros announcer and think the card or auction description said he was in the HOF as well, but I had never heard of him. It was cheap and a unique type card, so I said what the heck.

    Dave Niehaus is one that I would add to a collection like that because I have grown up in the Seattle area and he was definitely the voice of the Mariners the way those other guys were the voices of their teams (Did you know? Harwell was a Dodger announcer for a brief time early in his career like Barber and Scully…and Jerry Doggett too. I have been researching Dodger personnel recently for my autograph collection.). "My oh My!"

    As a Sox fan I love Jerry Remy and will always enjoy Don orsillo, even though he's in San Diego now. I think the man orsillo is taking over for is worthy of being in that collection. Dick Enberg was a great baseball announcer and he did other sports quite well too.

    For anyone who hasn't heard Dennis Eckersley call a game I highly suggest it, it's like your sipping a miller high life watching the game with your animated uncle.

    Those are awesome. I especially like the Red Barber.

    Remy is great. He can be truly funny. Being in CT I watch the Red Sox broadcast when they play the Yankees. The Yankees main announcer is awful, their radio people are maybe the worst in all of sports.

    I remember him and Orsillo with this one fondly. It was a running joke for weeks.

    Kalas signed a ton, so he shouldn't be too hard to find. Richie Ashburn, is in the HOF as a player was his long-time broadcast partner...

    Of the current guys who should get in, I'd say Bob Costas, Jon Miller and Gary Thorne would be locks down the road.
    Currently looking for: 2012 Ultra football (1992 style) #31 Rudy and Gold parallel version of 2011 Bowman Platinum Chase Utley #94.

    Always looking for: 2008 BC Jake Peavy Orange Refractors /25, have 6 so far.

    Nice line up of announcers you have there.

    As a guy who grew up listening to Hall of Famer Jack Brickhouse who was the Cubs broadcaster for decades, I will, of course, feel like you should add him to your mix. Brickhouse had the honors to broadcast so many World Series and All Star Games on the national broadcast and can be heard when one views the old videos on YouTube for these games.

    These are awesome! Now I need a Jack "We'll see you tomorrow night" Buck, and John Gordon (Twins radio) in my collection. Gordon was the guy I grew up with listening to Twins baseball. Me and my dad would go fishing and we would bring the radio out in the boat to listen to the game. It was kinda funny, I still remember that the AM station would cut the power to their signal at 9:00 or something, so we usually only got part of the game anyways. The only games I watched live were games we went to. Otherwise it was watched through the words of John Gordon until I was probably 12.

    I happened to stumble upon one that may be another pick for this subset. Bob Wolff. I ended up getting his Panini auto for $2.99!

    Great additions. Thanks for sharing.
    After I had identified a few, I saw and recognized the shade of him who made, through cowardice, the great refusal.

    Are you doing just announcers or Ford Frick Award winners?
