Default Tinker - Evers - Chance

I've always thought it would be fun to own at least one card of each of these players, and be able to display them together. I own very few pre-war cards and am just learning about what's out there. Thought this would be a nice way to learn more and start to wander down the rabbit-hole of early 20th century collecting.

Could anyone suggest "affordable' options, as well as suggestions about whether it would be best to find cards from the same set or simply ones that complement the others (in terms of making a nice display)? Not concerned about condition, but would like the issues to have some eye appeal. I recognize affordable means different things to different people, but I guess what I mean is I am not looking for the best of the best, the most scarce, etc.

Thanks!

Default budget

The prices could be all over the board. If you let us know what your approximate budget is, it will help. So, maybe $25, $50, $100 etc (for all 3)....There are lots of options in most price ranges. I think you could get nice, but lower grade T's or E's, in the $100-$200 range for all 3.... regards

Thanks. Ideally, maybe $75 each, but I could go to about $150 per player. Is there a 'price point' where there is a big difference in what you can expect to get?

You could get their T 206's easily for $150 each or less in VG or below

MAB,

I had those same thoughts, still have 'em. From looking at the options, I think the gold border T205's present the trio best. I like the white border T206 cards more than I do the gold or brown borders, but the 3 Cub infielders together look at their best, I think, in T205s.

I don't have the 3, I think I have one of 'em. Someone here surely can post the 3 beside one another in T205s.

The 100th anniversary of the poem is coming up in a few weeks.

I have them in the T206 ...and bought Harry Steinfeldt for good measure!
