Dwight Gooden 1987 Fleer Superstar Specials w/Roger Clemens
Wow, back in 1987 these guys were on top of the baseball world. Having just competed for the World Series trophy during the previous Fall Classic, Dwight Gooden and Roger Clemens could do no wrong!
Or so we all thought….
I would find it very hard to think that anybody could predict the routes that these two would take to the year 2011. And while each had several speed bumps and hiccups presented to them on the field, they are nothing like what these guys have been through off of the field.
Instead of rehashing issues that have been covered to no end, I will choose to celebrate the two guys that threw a combined 456 strikeouts in that 1987 campaign!
