Default 1909-1911 players who didn't get their own T206 card?

Posted By: barry arnold

I'm reading the magnificent THE GLORY OF THEIR TIMES again and just finished
the chapter on Jimmy Austin who played with Elberfeld,Keeler,Chesbro during the T206 years. Can someone tell me why he doesn't have his own card?
Can someone also tell me other players who didn't get their own cards?
This is a piece of research that I've missed and am eager to take a look at.

many thanks,
best,
Barry

...prominently discussed omissions are Smoky Joe Wood and Shoeless Joe Jackson:

Also, Connie Mack was sadly omitted in favor of other managers, like McGraw and Jennings.

Trying to figure those omissions out, while players like Lou Fiene (26 career games) get two cards, just makes my head hurt.

but probably not, since I suspect the answer is a simple "no"

The phrasing of your question ("their own card") brought this one to my mind:
Are there any T206 cards that feature more than one player? Would this be the first "Combo card"?

Thanks for allowing me this diversion.
Please resume normal broadcasting.

A powerful righthander that complemented Southpaw Eddie Plank for Connie Mack's A's.

Why he wasn't in the T206 set is a big mystery, as "Colby Jack" Coombs had a 59-21 record for 1910-11. His lifetime career
won-lost recordis 159-110....which includes a 21-10 record in Relief situations.

I include Coombs as one of a trio of A's players that fit my theory regarding contractual conflicts between American Caramel
and American Tobacco with respect to Eddie Collins....Jack Coombs....Eddie Plank.

I started collecting other sets because T206 doesn't have cards of Babe Adams, Sam Leever, and Eddie Grant along with Wood and Austin.

Jack Coombs was 31-9 with a 1.30 ERA in 1910. He started with
the As in 1906, a curious omission from T206...

Joe Wood
Jimmy Austin
Joe Jackson
Jack Coombs

Looks as though the criteria was pretty simple: You weren't included if your first name started with the letter J.

Same reason I didn't get a card!

Many,many thanks T206 scholars.

From your work, it looks like Austin,Jackson,Wood,Coombs, Grant,Leever,Adams,
Mack.
Any others off the top of your heads.
This is already mindblowing!
Any articles on this topic that you know about?

best,
Barry

In response to Jason's question above, even if the T-206 set featured combo cards, the Old Judge's would have beat them to the punch by about 20 years, give or take.

Now, in terms of players missing from the T-206 set, what about King Cole? He led the NL with a 20-4 record in 1910. Also, Harry Hooper is missing (I believe).
