Retired numbers of baseball players

Here is the list of all the retired numbers in baseball.  I found it kind of fun to look through.   Topps seemed to overlook the importance of a player's number when they issued the baseball cards.

Since they went to all the trouble to compile the statistics, don't you think that Topps Baseball Cards should have included the players numbers?

Baseball cards of these players are available to view and purchase at Dean's Cards.

  1. thanks for this very useful list! the #455 is interesting..

  2. I got a 1913 Fatima team card with out Deans Card on the front and theres no 1988 on the back right of it.

  3. Well if you send us the card, we will be glad to print "Dean's Cards" on it for you at no charge.

    Actually, I am just kidding you. The "Dean's Cards" is actually a watermark that is on the photo. We do not print our name on the cards that we sell. The 1988 shows that the card is a reprint, not an original like yours.
