How's This For An Opening Day Game - Check Out The 1972 All-Time Greats Set!

I read on http://www.nationalpastime.com/ today that on this day Ty Cobb and Tris Speaker were first teammates for the Philadelphia A's.  Cobb played for the A's in 1927 and 1928 and Speaker played just the 1928 season with the A's.  Both played their last game within a few weeks of each other in 1928.   Baseball-reference.com lists the player most similar to Ty Cobb as Tris Speaker.




Also playing in this game against the Yankees - Lefty Grove and Mickey Cochrane.



The Yankees had a nice lineup too - with two Ruths and a Gehrig, that's seven of the 15 cards from this set in one game.  Leo Durocher and Jimmy Foxx were also in this game.



Can any game have more than seven of these cards at once?  I will need to research that one.
