Default Chicago Cubs World Series Project

I thought it would be a cool idea to get a card from the starting lineup of the final game in the 1908 World Series against Detroit. I am just over half way complete and thought I would share and update as I finish it up.

COMPLETE!

1. LF Jimmy Sheckard


2. 2B Johnny Evers (HOF)


3. RF Frank "Wildfire" Shulte


4. 1B Frank Chance (HOF)


5. 3B Harry Steinfeldt


6. CF Solly Hofman


7. SS Joe Tinker (HOF)


8. C Johnny Kling


9. P Orval Overall

Awesome and ambitious project my man! I love the looks of those cards, especially the Chance.

Great idea. Hopefully you can start a 2013 set. It'll be a lot cheaper.

Hofman and Kling were the last two I needed. My next goal is 1933 Goudey Cubs team set. I'll post it over in the vintage section. Thanks for the look!

Do you only buy graded, or did you have them all graded afterward?

Wait... Cubs and world series in the same sentence? This is some impressive vintage man! You should be proud!

I hope you're able to complete it. That would be one awesome set once it's done!
