1958 Topps #145 Ed Bouchee


In 1957 Ed Bouchee came in second place to his teammate Jack Sanford for Rookie of the Year and was co-winner of the Sporting News Rookie of the Year along with Sanford.  After the '57 season Ed ran into some legal problems. In 1958 Topps had him slated for card #145. That card was never printed and may not have even been made. There are rumors of its existence but I have never seen it.

  1. It's about time someone made a '58 Topps Bouchee card. Great job! I did a post about the 1958 Topps Phillies team set a while back, and I'd love to share this card on my blog if you don't mind.

  2. did you ever actually have this card produced ? Bob Lemke had a 58 Bouchee printed,and it's terrific ,and looks a lot like the Harry Anderson card ,also from the 58 set ,second series .You can see it on the internet if you google Bob's blog site.
