Default Last living players from sets ??

Posted By: Brett

Does anyone have a list of the last living players from some T and E sets or even some N sets ? For the 1909-1911 cards, i'd guess that Rube Marquard was the last living player, and Smokey Joe Wood or Edd Roush ? for the 1910's sets ?

I think for the e107 set, Freddy Parent. he died in 1972, 96 years old. t205 and t206 Rube Marquard, died in 1980, 93 years old. need more help here...

Maybe Edd Roush for 1915 Cracker Jack? He died in 1984.

I love pinatas. You get to beat the crap of something and get rewarded with candy.

Roush is correct for 1915 CJ's, but believe he lasted till 1988..

He lived till 1961. Can't think on anyone who lived longer.

Connie Mack was 1956.

You can click this link to see everyone who died in 1980 (the year Marquard died). You can then click previous year or next year and then scroll through the names. Pretty interesting.

I forgot about Chet Hoff. he died in 1998 I think at the age of 107 ! Thats pretty crazy. If i lived to be 107, it would be the year 2093 lol.

Thanks for that link. Its interesting because some of these guys who played in the 1910s and who lived to be in their 90's only played a few games in the majors. I wonder if anyone wrote to them and got their autographs. Also, have you guys ever wondered what happened to these players uniforms from the 1910's or earlier ? I wonder if the relatives of those ball players still have them in a trunk in an attic somewhere !

My guess is they just re-used the uniforms for other players, and then were probably thrown out when they got ruined.

I know the Boston Bruins would pass their jerseys on to their minor league clubs, I read an interesting story about how collectors were able to track Bobby Orr's rookie jersey down by examining photos of the Bruins minor league teams and comparing them with Bobby in 1966-67.

How about Bill Werber from the Diamond Stars and Werber and his former teammate and friend Lonny Frey in the '34 Goudey set? Are these guys the oldest living players who appeared on cards?

Hey Sean, I didn't know that Art Butler was the last living player from the t206 set. This might be a tough question, but do you know who the last living minor or southern leaguers who never played in the major leagues was ? I wouldn't know where to find out that info if they never played a major league game. I wonder if there is any signed examples in someones attic or under a floor board.

Arthur Edward Butler, who played in the majors 1911-16, died October 7 1984, but he played with his hometown Fall River team in the New England League in 1910. He was not in the T206 set.

The Butler with Rochester in T206 was John Albert Butler, who played in the majors 1901-07. He was a student at Fordham and played his first ML game (season) under the name of Fred King. John Butler died Feb. 2, 1950, long before many of the other T206ers.

The T206ers who survived past 1970 (unless I've missed someone), and their dates of death:

Rube Marquard 6-1-1980
Paddy Livingston 9-19-1977
Al Shaw 12-30-1974
Fred Snodgrass 4-5-1974
Larry Doyle 3-1-1974
George McBride 7-2-1973
Dutch Jordan 12-23-1972
Fred Parent 11-2-1972
Davy Jones 3-30-1972
Donie Bush 3-28-1972
Zach Wheat 3-11-1972
Chief Meyers 7-25-1971
Harry Pattee 7-17-1971

Marquard: I'm going to outlive you.
Livingston: How can you tell?
Marquard: Because I can see the future.
Livingston: Oh, yeah?
Marquard: And to prove it -- even though we never played in the same game together, I am going to have this gentleman take our picture.



Why else would they have had occasion to be photographed together? Indeed, they were the last two living members of T206, but how could they have known that 70 years earleir?

I hope I am not straying too far from topic, but is there any truth to the proposition that the only autographs worth collecting are of those who died before 1980?

Tom,

T206er Nap Rucker didn't make it "past" 1970, but died in 1970.
