So over the last month or so I made 50 first year cards of Hall of Famers who didn't have a card in the actual first year they played. So now I figure I have to go the other way and shoot for 50 Hall of Famers who didn't have a card in the year after they played their last game. 11 down, 39 to go... Or 10 down, 40 to go seeing how Munson isn't in the HOF.

Neat! I'm curious...it seems like, based on your excellent choices there, that a number of guys didn't have a card after their last year played. Has that changed more recently? When a guy retires, do they have a card in the following year's set as some sort of way to complete their record, or to provide collectors with a card that has their final stats? I'm not talking about special sets, or one-offs, but just the regular Topps set. It's a question I hadn't thought much about until seeing these cards.

Really well done. Thanks for sharing.

I haven't even got to the really good players yet. Frank Robinson, Bob Feller, Ernie Banks, Willie Mays among others.. I think the most common denominator is that they were all pretty terrible players at that point and barely even saw the field. Back then I guess nostalgia wasn't enough to get you a card in the set.

When you get to the really good guys make sure to post pics of them also. The cards in the first post look very nice.
