Ok, you jogged my memory....Jeter actually retired after 2014, not last year. Jeter and Konerko both retired at the end of 2014, so they're tied for #4 . Someone else retired at the end of 2015.
Thome last played in 2012, but I think he "retired" in mid 2014, so he's not the answer.
I got the answer but had to cheat. The guy who it is, I actually thought he may still be playing. Anyway, I'll let someone else take a shot.
I was surprised when I looked that the Big 3 As pitchers of Zito, Haren and Hudson all formally retired within a month of each other. (Though that's not Tek related)

So glad I was able to finish the Caminiti set
Big shoutout to Rich [MENTION=8009]rinkrat38[/MENTION], i have been down to needing 4 cards it seems like forever. He pm me said he had pattern 71 and he sent it right off to me. A very nice gesture.
Thanks so much Rich.
Now down to three # 1 , 77 , 86
#71 . Thats awesome! Yeah, if it weren't for Rich I'd still need 50 or 60 Thome Teks instead of 10. In fact, he is the reason I started collecting Thome Teks.
Thanks for the trade, [MENTION=9603]corockies[/MENTION]. I'm still about 20 Diffractors away from the set.
