The ex-Royals 1971 set from 2009   Leave a comment

Last year I did a Kansas City Royals card set as well. I did 1971 Topps; my favorite card design of all time. Many of the players are already gone, some for the best, I’m looking at you Jose Guillen. It looks like I did 22 cards. Of those 22, 13 are gone. That leaves only 9 current players I did, keep in mind this was just last year I believe.

It seems you never know how bad some of your players are until they are gone, I’m looking at you Mike Jacobs. Ah, Mike Jacobs, one of three DH’s the Royals carried that year. Luckily Billy Butler learned to play first out of necessity. Of the former players there are a couple I really wish we had back. Either Miguel Olivo or John Buck would both be an improvement over Kendall offensively. David Dejesus of course is a player Royals fans will miss.

Here is a sampling of the 22 cards. I am going to post all the players that have since left. I will probably re-do the rest of the set to fit the current roster. I know everyone wants to see that Jesse Chavez card.
