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.
