Rebus of Death

As I’ve learned over the years, there is a great deal of brainpower lurking out there in the miasmic hellscape known as NotGraphs Readerland, and it is just waiting to be mobilized in the service of something ridiculously inconsequential. Never again will I underestimate you, readers; and so for this, my third Rebus, I have abandoned all mercy, pity, remorse, and indeed all humanity. There will be no hints; there will be no gimmes. I give you the Rebus of Death, and yes, you may click to receive your death in larger form:

I think we need to do this one as a team.

#1 is George Sisler of the St Louis Browns, #2 is Hunter Pence, #7 is the Yasiel Puig wag, #8 is Babe Ruth in a Providence Grays uniform, #11 is Katharine Hepburn (with Spencer Tracy at the edge).

Anyone know the rest?

Just identified #9: Robert Fick.

Still can’t make any sense out of it as a rebus. I keep trying to make “Cistulli” somewhere.

I’m so embarrassed. Not only did I have a conversation with myself in the comments, I failed to get the puzzle after having already read the answer to it below.

What’s funny is that the real answer actually makes even less sense than “Still for marlin chick diamond bat puig pabunt realhotchickfromoldmovie” or “Old lockerfish know babes like diamonds not not so fast! Babes also love brave long dusty dress smiles” or “Carson is a brown hill of fishy old woman who wants a diamond that is classic, finger-wagging babe-approved and that will be braved by old women and a 60′s starlet”
