“Lost Cards”: The Year After, 1985

22 02 2014


1985 Topps Joe Morgan

Best Player to retire in 1984.   Joe Morgan (Hall of Famer)

Did he have a 1985 card?   Yes – 1985 Topps, Fleer and Donruss

Morgan had a card in all 3 sets.  Topps seems to be changing its tune in the 80’s, where they include a final card of these guys – like I said in a previous post, I think this might have been in response to competition from Fleer and Donruss.  

Apologies to:   Jim Palmer (Hall of Famer).  Palmer, however, was a different story.  He retired very early in the 1984 season, which is probably why he had no 1985 cards in either of the big 3.
