“Lost Cards”: The Year After, 1997

3 03 2014


1997 Topps Chipper

Best Player to retire in 1996.   Ozzie Smith (Hall of Famer).

Did he have a 1997 card?   Yes – Too many to note (but not 1997 Topps)

1997 Leaf Ozzie Smith

The Wizard had a bunch of cards in 1997, but not a card in the 1997 Topps set.

Apologies to:   Andre Dawson (Hall of Famer).  Dawson was in a similar number of sets as Smith, but not in the Topps set either.

Also retiring in 1996 was Alan Trammell, who like his double play mate Lou Whitaker, should be getting more Hall of Fame love.
