Topps in the 90’s – last active player

1 09 2016

Last active player from this decade:  The answer to this question for the 80’s was Omar Vizquel.  For the 90’s Topps decade, there are 8 guys who are still on active rosters.  Ortiz has announced his retirement at the end of the year, but I think the rest of these guys are going to be playing in 2017, so it won’t get weeded out much more.

The card listed below is the player’s first Topps card.

There’s also 3 other guys who played this year and aren’t officially retired.  I think A-Rod is done, and while Josh Hamilton just got cut by the Rangers it sounds like he will re-sign next year.  I have no clue about Carl Crawford.
