1. I think I can ID them.

Front Row: Eddie Collins, Babe Ruth, Connie Mack, Cy Young

Back Row: Honus Wagner, Grover Cleveland Alexander, Tris Speaker, Napolean Lajoie, George Sisler, Walter Johnson.

Ty Cobb arrived too late for the picture.

2. I hope Honus Wagner had a comfortable retirement

...selling his own baseball cards.

Thank you for the ID's!

3. I don't think so. The reason the T206 Wagner card is worth so much

is because Wagner, a non-smoker, ordered the tobacco company that issued the cards to stop pull his from the series.
