Best Player to retire in 1993. Nolan Ryan (Hall of Famer).
Did he have a 1994 card? Yes – Topps, Collector’s Choice, Stadium Club and Donruss.
Ryan had a Topps card with his full stat line and a 27-year logo. It was one of two “tribute” cards in the 1994 set along with the one for Hank Aaron also shown above.
Apologies to: George Brett (Hall of Famer). Also to Robin Yount (Hall of Famer). And Carlton Fisk (Hall of Famer). This was one of the best retiring classes I’ve done. In fact it probably is the best. Brett and Yount both have quite a few final cards in 1994, just like Ryan. Fisk, however, has none – which probably has something to do with his unceremonious farewell from the White Sox.
