Dwight Gooden’s Highly Sought After Rookie Card – 1984 Fleer Update

Dwight Gooden’s Highly Sought After Rookie Card – 1984 Fleer Update

Easily the most coveted card for a collector of Dwight Gooden, I remember how hot this card was when released as part of the 1984 Fleer Updated baseball card set.

Since ‘Doc’ did not have a card in any base set issues in 1984, by the time the updated and traded sets came out he had already established a reputation.  And the collectors went nuts for his rookie cards.

So, here it is.  If you have one, you’re lucky.

Gooden 1984 Fleer Update

I got mine roughly 18 months ago and could not be happier about having that piece in my Dwight Gooden collection.  If you collect ‘Doc’ or rookie cards from the 1980’s, this card is a M-U-S-T!!!

  1. One of my greatest collecting regrets is that I bought the 1984 Topps Traded, but decided I’d get the 1984 Fleer Update “later”. 29 years later, I still don’t have any cards from the ’84 Fleer Update set.

    • Shablotnik- I have to guess that a lot of people made that same, ‘wrong’ decision. That ’84 Fleer Update set to this day still boasts some of the greatest rookie cards from the decade. And 2 of the most valuable!
