Default Topps Living Set "Wishlist"

Let's see if there's any interest in this --

So I know that each week, some of us make guesses as to who will be in the TLS lineup. And though we take a stab at who the 'scrubs' will be, it's pretty random, and the only scrubs we really cared about were not truly scrubs (Bartolo, Neshek, etc.)
But the stars/headliners/rookies are fun to see.

So I thought it would be interesting to keep a tally of who we'd like to see, and break it down by team.
So I'll have a post that shows the tally of each team, and then a Wishlist, broken down by team.
I'll also have a "HOF/Retired" section, especially if the team no longer exists, or if the team has too many and it gets cluttered (ex. yankees).

Throw out some names/teams, and I'll start building the list!

I'll start:

LA Angels: Mike Trout
Mariners: Ken Griffey Jr.
NY Mets: Jacob deGrom, Brandon Nimmo
NY Mets (retired/HOF): Gary Carter, Keith Hernandez, Gregg Jefferies, Lenny Dykstra
NY Yankees (retired/HOF): Tommy John, Kevin Maas, Babe Ruth

I'm just still bummed they didn't roll with Trout at spot 27. I'm guessing it'll be spot 100 now.

Gibby arm pump going around the bases after WS HR would awesome - even if just facial expression!

Gary Carter has to be in an Expos uniform. For that matter, any HOF player should have their HOF cap as their card.

Gary Carter has already been mentioned, so I won't repeat that. Oh wait, I kind of just did there.
I'd also like to see one of Ivan Rodriguez, preferably as a Ranger. Other players I would enjoy seeing are Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan, Randy Johnson, Bob Gibson, and Josh Gibson.

Thinking about 5 years from now, what "rookies" would I want from 2018 Living. Some are hurt or struggling, but here are my top 10 that have rookie status with Topps (so no Vlad Guerrero Jr., Kyle Tucker, etc) that as a collector I would want in 2023:

1) Victor Robles - Washington Nationals
2) Jack Flaherty - St. Louis Cardinals
3) Willy Adames - Tampa Bay Rays
4) Francisco Mejia - San Diego Padres
5) Alex Verdugo - Los Angeles Dodgers
6) Erick Fedde - Washington Nationals
7) Nick Williams - Philadelphia Philles
8) Clint Frazier - New York Yankees
9) Harrison Bader - St. Louis Cardinals
10) Willie Calhoun - Texas Rangers

Just missed list - Luiz Gohara, Chance Sisco, J.P. Crawford

Updated the lists --
Quick note, for players where there was no team specified, I may put them into a team slot that was not what you were looking for, just let me know and I can revise, thanks.
