“Lost Cards”: The Year After, 1968

22 01 2014


1968 Topps Nolan Ryan

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!

Whitey Ford - 1967 Topps

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.
