Don't know shat you've got til' it's gone

SDS

With the Pujols BR announcement who are some other players on the verge of retirement that you'd love to see get flashback glory?

I'll start... first my homer picks...
Signature Series Adam Wainwright: The way he's pitching it's hard to see him hanging it up but his Signiature Series card had a cult following last year.
Signature Series Yadier Molina: Heck, he might give Julio Franco a run for his money on longevity but this would be a popular card and we're hitting the dog days of summer.
2018 Second Half Matt Carpenter: Marp is almost certainly done after 2021 so it's now or never. Let's get that salsa going!

Now a few from the rest of the field...
Signiature Series Oliver Perez: Hear me out. His delivery is funky and he's had a few very solid years mixed in.
2021 TB Rays Topps Now Nelson Cruz: I just want this to be like the year that we got like 35 Bert Blyleven cards.
2013 Awards Chris Davis: He's been at the wrong end of a lot of jokes recently but the dude was once a monster.
Signiature Series Yoenis Céspedes: It seems he may have burned his bridges back to the MLB. It's hard to imagine he doesn't have a little something left in the tank to DH but if he hasn't caught on by now it's hard to imagine him coming back next year.
Signiature Series Matt Kemp: I'm not sure Kemp has ever got a card that really did his peak performance justice when you look at some of the other juiced cards out there. Let's make it happen.

SDS

Awards/MS/SS Buster Posey
MS Mark Melancon (51 Save Season)

Doesn't fit the verge of retirement but:
2010 MVP Josh Hamilton

Those would be my homer picks as well.

I have been using the Wainwright relief card as my closer since it came out. I was disappointed there was no Topps Now acknowledgement for his Maddux game last week.

I honestly could see both Wainwright and Molina back next year if they are both willing to have team friendly contracts

SDS

I’d be down for a diamond prime Ollie Perez reliever card.

SDS

I’ve been waiting for that Molina card all year and two years ago Twingaming had his moment set and that 95 Waino was surprisingly my favorite card behind 98 SS Molina from RS.

SDS

They shaved paradise and put up a sharking shot.

SDS

Miguel Cabrera should get his own card: Triple Crown
Contact, Power, Vision, Clutch all 125

SDS

Ryan Braun 2011 MVP - Probably not with his 2nd half card already out.
Miguel Cabrera Triple Crown
Ian Desmond Silver Slugger

SDS

Jamie Moyer (assuming he still pitches) - 325 stamina.

They are always a week behind when it comes to the Topps Now cards. So if Wainwright were to get one, it would drop this Friday.

Did you know 'Shat' is:
A) Past tense of taking a dump
B) Abbreviation for Shatner
C) Almost SHAQ? 🤪
