Default Best Last Active Player Card?

Who had the best final card? So many of the last cards of then-active great players were with bizarre teams, or were just sad looking portraits of burned out old guys. My personal pick:



Classic pose, and he went out with a HR.

BTW, the 1969 Topps Mantle is not eligible; he retired before the season started and never played an inning in 1969, so the 1968 is really his last active card.

1956 Topps Jackie Robinson. You can't beat the action shot of him stealing home.

I'm not sure which one would qualify here, but Hammerin' Hank's regular issue '73 or the tribute card in '74 were both pretty cool...

Aaron's last card would be the 76 topps in the Brewers uni....

1969 Mantle Topps Super. Don't have access to my photo, but that is one of the finest looking "mainstream" cards from the error in my opinion.

Since Nolan's career started pre 1980 I'm throwing in his 1993 Topps card.
