Cards That Never Were #12

1968 Topps - Bill Skowron

It would be easy to ignore Moose's 1967 season. He got off to a poor start with the White Sox and was quickly traded to the Angels for Cotton Nash and cash. Life in California was slightly better, but not by much.

Bill finished out the year with the Angels before being released shortly after the season was over. Considering Skowron won five World Series championships (four with the Yankees and one with the Dodgers), you would think that he would be deserving of a final card. You would be wrong. Even his six All-Star Game selections didn't sway Topps to issue a 1968 card.

According to Topps, Moose's last team was with the White Sox and his last card was in the 1967 set. Let's correct that oversight right now. Here is Bill Skowron's proper final card.
