Cards That Never Were - 34th Series Checklist - Jim Hickman

Once again I decided to change up the look of my checklists. This time the design was lifted from the 1983 Topps set because I've always liked the checklists that included players. The player featured on this checklist is Jim Hickman who passed away last month. Hickman played from 1962-1974 for the Mets, Dodgers, Cubs and Cardinals. His only All Star appearance came in a Cubs uniform in 1970. That game is best remembered for Pete Rose bowling over Ray Fosse to win the game in the bottom of the 12th inning.  But it was Jim Hickman who hit the single to center field that drove in Rose from second.

This series is dominated by Throwback Thursday cards. Also included was a continuation of the Honorary Captain series that I have been doing over the past 4 All Star breaks. I also mad cards celebrating the life of "Mr. Hockey" Gordie Howe and the 3rd triple-play by the White Sox this season.

 As usual if you want to see all of these cards in one place with no boring words to slow you down, you can click here or click on any of the checklists in the right border to see those cards.
