RECAP – “Lost Cards”: The Year After

21 03 2014

Back in January, I posed the question:

“Lost Cards.” Every year card companies come out with different sets and make decisions about what athletes they do and don’t include in those sets.  They choose to include new subsets – and exclude old ones.  What’s the card or card(s) that weren’t produced that you wish had been made?

I based the last 60 or so posts on what I called “the year after”.  When a player retires at the end of one season, you don’t know if he’ll be included in the next year’s set.  Here’s a recap of the players I did and whether or not they had a card.

In determining if they had  card below – I only included cards that have the player’s final statline.  So the Willie Mays 1974 World Series card doesn’t count.
