1985 Wichita Eagle-Beacon Card Checklist Part #3

Today's update has the first old-time players in it.  We have Hall-of-Fame players Rube Marquard, Christy Mathewson, and Walter Johnson in this entry to the Wichita Eagle-Beacon set.  I've listed a Christy Mathewson from the popular T206 White Border set as an example.  The set ends in 1985, so I would expect within the next few months, I will have a complete checklist for 1983-85.
