Dwight Gooden 1989 Fleer Superstar Special w/Mark Davis
When pairing up the greatest pitchers from that year, I have to think that very few baseball fans or baseball card collectors would pair Dwight Gooden and Mark Davis together.
But truth be told they share more than what you may think. You see, Mark Davis is a Cy Young award winner, just like ‘Doc’ Gooden. And while he may not be as decorated or spectacular, he did have a phenomenal season in 1989.
But this card is going into my Dwight Gooden collection, so it’s time to focus on him. In an injury-plagued year, Gooden made 17 starts, compiling a 9-4 record. He amassed a 2.89 ERA and struck out 101 batters in 118 innings of work.
