“Lost Cards”: The Year After, 1972

30 01 2014


2013 Topps Banks mini

Best Player to retire in 1971.   Ernie Banks (Hall of Famer)

Did he have a 1972 card?   No.

The last card of Banks was from 1971 Topps.

1971 Topps Ernie Banks

Was a “retro” card ever produced?   Yes – somewhat inadvertently.  Topps inserted mini versions of 1972 Topps cards into the 2013 product, and they included Banks in that set.  It’s shown above.

Apologies to:   Jim Bunning (Hall of Famer).  His last card was in 1971 as well.  No retro cards made of him, however.
