“Lost Cards”: The Year After, 1970

28 01 2014

I’m back to the Lost Cards series I was running until the end of the last week.  Next year up is…


1970 topps Nolan Ryan

Best Player to retire in 1969.   Don Drysdale (Hall of Famer)

Did he have a 1970 card?   No.

Drysdale’s last card was from 1969 Topps.

Was a “retro” card ever produced?   No – Topps didn’t do a “never was” card of Drysdale.  But here’s a custom card made for your enjoyment from the blog “When Topps had (Base) Balls!“.

Apologies to:   Ken Boyer, who also had his last card in the 1969 Topps set.
