Best Player to retire in 1967. Whitey Ford (Hall of Famer)
Did he have a 1968 card? No.
Ford’s last card was from 1967 Topps. It features a very common baseball card pose for the “Chairman of the Board” – but it doesn’t have his full stat line!
Was a “retro” card ever produced? No – Topps didn’t do a “never was” card of Ford. I hadn’t seen a custom card made either – until the task was taken on by Cards that Never Were.
Apologies to: Dick Groat, who also didn’t have a card from 1968 Topps.
