Default Series #1 Card set for players Pre 1930...who makes the 54 player cut?

To recap, I have had a few polls and discussions over the past week or so as to designing a set of cards to feature players. Now comes the last thing to decide....

What players to put into the set.

The votes for the last poll of how to break down the players featured in the NET 54 Card set was almost a dead split tie….so to create even better and fun discussion (and since this was my idea….) The Net 54 Set will be comprised of 2 Series!

The 1st series will be for players that made an their first appearance in 1929 or earlier.

2nd series will be for players that made their first appearance in 1930 or later.

I have listed the checklist on the first post of this thread which I will update periodically when it seems like there is a strong consensus for inclusion.

Let the discussion begin!

Limiting this to 54 players should create a lot of good conversation. I am sure there will be disagreements. Try to keep it all respectful.





Card # Player
1 Sam Crawford (artistic liberties of being the OP)
2 Babe Ruth
3 Ty Cobb
4 Cy Young

Were we only supposed to pick for the first series? The title says series 1? IF so then I have a feeling that Ruth will be a fave with Cobby close behind.

Top 54 players for each of us? That isn't how I read it and that would be too many to have everyone throw out there.

I think we need to start the 33 players who were seen by those that followed the game for a living as the best of the best and elected by the BBWAA to the HOF, instead of being back-doored by their friends.
Ty Cobb
Walter Johnson
Christy Mathewson
Babe Ruth
Honus Wagner
Nap Lajoie
Tris Speaker
Cy Young
Grover Alexander
Eddie Collins
Willie Keeler
George Sisler
Lou Gehrig
Rogers Hornsby
Mickey Cochrane
Frankie Frisch
Lefty Grove
Carl Hubbell
Herb Pennock
Pie Traynor
Charlie Gehringer
Jimmie Foxx
Mel Ott
Harry Heilmann
Paul Waner
Al Simmons
Bill Dickey
Rabbit Maranville
Bill Terry
Gabby Hartnett
Ted Lyons
Dazzy Vance
Joe Cronin

Then the best of the 19th century, starting with these 12.
Cap Anson
John McGraw
Buck Ewing
Old Hoss Radbourn
Dan Brouthers
Jimmy Collins
Ed Delahanty
Hugh Duffy
King Kelly
Jim O'Rourke
Jesse Burkett
Kid Nichols

Finally 2 players who were over looked by the BBWAA in my opinion and you can't have a set with Shoeless Joe.
Eddie Plank
Frank Baker
Joe Jackson

That is 48, then if you want to pick Sam Crawford, that puts us at 49, with 5 slots to finish the list.

Good list but not enough pitchers. At a minimum Keefe, Clarkson, Brown and Walsh (sorry if I missed them).

There is definitely room for them. That would put us at 53.
