I realize it's a longshot, but if anyone has any, let me know!! I already have a 1911 Ed Cicotte and 1909 Chick Gandil, still looking for:
- Oscar "Hap" Felsch
- "Shoeless" Joe Jackson
- Fred McMullin
- Charles "Swede" Risberg
- George "Buck" Weaver
- Claude "Lefty" Williams
I would also be interested in any of the other players from that team that weren't banned. Already have a Red Faber and Ray Schalk, looking for the rest.
It's not really for investment purposes, it's more of an interest thing so I am not terribly concerned with condition. (Especially since so many cards of the era were hand cut.) Let me know if you can help!

Hal Chase was a gambler, but I don't think he was banned from baseball along with the Black Sox or related to this controversy. Someone anonymously sent proof of his gambling, but I don't think it was related to this. In any case, I want to stick to the Sox first, that will be expensive enough! :-)
