Well ok its a team set but one I thought I would never complete. I did it in about 3 1/2 years. I bought my first one (a Joe Tinker) off Peter Baldes in February 2011 and just bought the final one I needed (Jimmy Lavender) tonight.
I now have 21 total and am working on a Joe Tinker color set (I have five different so far). Anyways just wanted to share :)

Congrats! Nice set (even as a Brewers fan I can admit it).

For those of us unfamiliar with these, can you please share the name and catalog designation?

Hey Bryan,

These are 1916 BF2 Ferguson Bakery Pennants. More detail here on Old Cardboard: BF2 Pennants (http://www.oldcardboard.com/o/b/bf2/bf2.asp?cardsetID=1039)

This is a cool set and congrats on completing the team set. It would be cool to see your Tinkers all together with the different colors too. How many different colors are there?

Thanks,

AndyH

Thanks guys! I haven't quite determined the number of colors as some of them are a shade different. Im not sure if that means its a different color or it just faded. Im sure there are at least three more Tinkers I could get. When I get this new one ill take a pic of the five together.
I was wondering about factory stickers. These newest have them on the back though all my others do not. Are these rare? I can't wait to see it up close so I can tell how easily these come off.

Thanks! Im working on a m101-4 and -5 cubs set and plan to do the most ridiculously too big mat of both the sets for my ultimate 1916 cubs display (first cubs to play in Wrigley). I even have some autographs I might add to the mat just to make things even more difficult :)

Got my new ones today. Here is a sort of representation of how the finished product will look once I finish getting the m's I need plus a few more autographs. i plan on having all the cards graded before I mat. Should be quite the undertaking!
