Default 3000 Hit trivia

Honest attempts only (I.e. No book or internet searching)

1. Of the 16 oldest franchises (pre1961 expansion) which 3 have never had a player get their 3000th hit in their uniform?

2. Which franchise has had 3 players get their 3000th hit while playing for them?

3. Who was the first 500 HR club member to get their 3000th hit?

4. The 1970's and 1990's were each witness to a 3000th hit 7 times. How many of these 14 can you name?

2. How about the Pirates? Wagner Waner Clemente?

4. 1970s. Clemente Mays Aaron Yaz? Brock? Rose Kaline
1990s. Winfield Molitor Murray Ripken Brett Yount Gwynn Boggs
oops that's 8 either Gwynn or Boggs probably not until 2000s not sure which

Default 3000 Hit trivia

1. Cap Anson achieved his 3000th hit with the Cubs franchise.
Dodgers and Phillies are correct. Still looking for 3rd franchise.

2. Waner was a Brave when he reached 3000.

The Colts became the White Sox, not the Cubs.

4. Correct! Although it was Ripken who reached 3000 after the 1990's. He finished 1999, 9 hits shy of the mark.

Baseball Reference has the Colts as part of the Cubs franchise.

So does The Baseball Cube.

I thought the Colts became the White Stockings, who then became the White Sox? I always associated Anson with the White Sox and not the Cubs but maybe I've been wrong the whole time.
