“Lost Cards”: The Year After, 1955

9 01 2014


2011 Topps Lost Cards Mantle 1955

Best Player to retire in 1954.   Johnny Pesky

Did he have a 1955 card?   Yes – 1955 Bowman

Pesky wasn’t included in the 1955 set, but did make the final Bowman set to show off his full career statistics.  His last Topps card was 1954 Topps.

1955 Bowman Johnny Pesky

Was a “retro” card ever produced?   No – Topps never created a Pesky card from the 1954 Topps or Bowman sets.

Apologies to:   Allie Reynolds, who also made it into 1955 Bowman.

Note: The card at the top of the post is Mickey Mantle’s 1955 version from the 2011 “Cards that Never Were” set.
