Bret Saberhagen

Bret William Saberhagen
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 195 lbs.
Born: April 11, 1964 in Chicago Heights, IL
Drafted: 19th round 1982 by the Kansas City Royals
Acquired: traded from the Royals with
Bill Pecota for Kevin McReynolds, Gregg Jefferies, and Keith Miller, December 1991
Departed: traded to the Colorado Rockies with a player to be named later (David Swanson) for
Juan Acevedo and Arnold Gooch, July 1995

 

I believe Bret would have been a Hall-of-Famer if it hadn't been for several serious arm ailments that afflicted him throughout his career. Just look at his abbreviated résumé: Two Cy Young awards, a no-hitter, a career winning percentage of nearly .600, and an incredible strikeout-to-walk ratio. Pictured here is his 1995 Pinnacle Museum Collection card. Many more cards are shown below.
