“Lost Cards”: The Year After, 1987

23 02 2014


1987 Topps Rose

Best Player to retire in 1986.   Pete Rose

Did he have a 1987 card?   Yes – 1987 Topps, Fleer and Donruss

Rose got 3 cards in the 1987 set – as shown above.  But most importantly, he had a final player card in the 1987 Topps set.  He also had a card in Fleer and Donruss.

Apologies to:   Tom Seaver (Hall of Famer).  Like Yastrzemski, this is a heck of a runner-up – Seaver is one of the greatest pitchers of all-time.  Tom Terrific was also featured in all 3 sets in 1987.  2 more of Rose’s Big Red Machine teammates also retired in 1986 – George Foster and Tony Perez.  Foster didn’t have a card in 1987 – mostly because he hung ’em up mid-way through the ’86 season.  Perez had a Fleer card.
