Tigers Card Tuesday/Blog Bat Around- The Last Base Card

Going through some cards on Monday while doing much needed binder work, I came across this 1977 Topps that had found it's way into a small box.

      Happy Tigers Card Tuesday! 

🐅⚾️ In 1977, even though he'd already retired from a 15 year big league career, Topps did issue Bill Freehan a card, his final base card.

       1977 Topps #22 Bill Freehan 


👉 In 1976, the 34 year old Freehan, my All-Time favorite ballplayer, played in just 71 games, batting .270, w/ 5 HRs and 27 RBI.

Although still a relatively young man, he retired instead of accepting a trade to the Philadelphia Phillies for a young catcher named Bob Boone

🤔 How about you favorite ballplayer and his final base card? 

👉 Do a blog post using that player's last base card that was in a major set of baseball baseball cards, i.e., 1977 Topps.

👉 Blog Bat Around Post Rules-

Must be the last base card issued by Topps, Fleer, Donruss, Upper Deck, etc, for that player.

👉 No Inserts, Relic, Autographed, or specially made cards, no new releases, or buybacks.

Let's have some fun! 


  1. I have a couple Freehans, but not this one.
    My favorite player was a contemporary of Boone's.
