I know Chester (Chet) Hoff was the last living player from the t207 set. The last living player from the Goudey/Play Ball sets died within the past few year. Just can't remember his name right now.

Gus Suhr was the last living player in the 1933 goudey set. Joe Hauser was the last in the E120

Maybe Rube Marquard was the last T206 and Joe Wood the last T202?

When did Gus Suhr pass away? A couple of years ago, I received autos from Linus Frey and Billy Werber TTM. Both are in the 1934 Goudey set, but not 1933.

I believe Dummy Hoy was last living player from the Old Judge N172 set.

Linus Frey and 1941 Goudey

Post by BleedinBlue on Mon Dec 14, 2009 5:17 am

Linus Frey passed away in September of 2009. He was the last from the 1934 Goudey set.

Dario Lodigiani was the last from the 1941 Goudey set until he passed away about 2 years ago.

Both Feller and Doerr are alive from some of the sets in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Both are great signers, even through the mail.
