Default Fun question about vintage cards and the first five HOF players

What set or sets contain cards of all five of the first Hall of Fame players while they were all still active? I think I know of one...post answers if you got'em.

The problem is finding a set where there is overlap when Ruth was just starting and Mathewson was finishing up, which was 1916...narrow window there.

I can't find an answer to the question.

W514 has all 5 of them, but Matty's card says "former" pitcher, as he had not played for several years by the time the set was issued (1919).

Cheers,
Blair
