I figured progress on this set will be slow, but I'll go ahead and get started. Looking for over half the set still. Willing to take on cards in any condition, including some of those trimmed ones that were in the Goodwin auction a while back -
Bill Bergen, Bill Bradley, Hal Chase, Fred Clark (Clarke), Lou Criger, Harry Davis, Art Devlin, Mickey Doolan, George Gibson, Addie Joss, Nap Lajoie, Frank LaPorte, Harry Lord, Andy McConnell, Dots Miller, Eddie Plank, Honus Wagner (either)
