The Ones That Got Away

In my previous post regarding eTopps, I alluded to the fact that Topps did not go forward with all of my suggestions. Now that that cat is out of the bag, here's the full list I proposed to Topps. The listings in bold are cards that will be part of the set.

1952 Ted Williams, Boston Red Sox
1982 Ryne Sandberg, Philadelphia Phillies
1984 Traded Roger Clemens, Boston Red Sox
1954 Stan Musial, St. Louis Cardinals

1951 Bowman Joe DiMaggio, NY Yankees*
1982 Balboni/Elway/Righetti, NY Yankees Future Stars
1952 Satchel Paige, St. Louis Browns
1962 Maury Wills, LA Dodgers
1976 Reggie Jackson, Baltimore Orioles
1974 Dave Winfield, Washington Nat’l.
1964 Masanori Murakami, SF Giants
1989 Jeff Bagwell, Boston Red Sox #4 Draft Pick
1985 Barry Larkin, Team USA
1976 Mark Fidrych, Detroit Tigers
1985 Cal Ripken Jr/Sr, Father/Son
1989 Sammy Sosa, Texas Rangers Future Star
1952 Ralph Kiner, Pittsburgh Pirates
1985 Will Clark, Team USA
1954 Ralph Kiner, Chicago Cubs
1991 Pedro Martinez, LA Dodgers Future Star
1969 Thurman Munson, NY Yankees
1976 Traded Cecil Cooper, Milwaukee Brewers

*DiMaggio will be on 1952 Topps

I will buy the Clemens and I would have bought the Fidrych and Munson cards if they had done them.
