The mail came early today and included a couple more cards for my Mets autograph collection.
This 1985 Fleer card signed by Brent Gaff was purchased on eBay from scottdfran. It was once part of a nearly complete signed 1985 Fleer set that he broke up last week. This week’s set is 1986 Fleer, and I’m hoping to win the Ronn Reynolds card for my collection.
Gaff was a part of the Mets bullpen from 1982-84, but 1984 was his only full season in the big leagues. His career record was 4-5 with a 4.06 ERA in 58 games.
Joe Hicks signed a 1991 Wiz Mets card that I’d mailed to him earlier this month. Hicks spent parts of five seasons in the big leagues, though he was never a starter. He played for the Chicago White Sox and Washington Senators before finishing his career with the Mets in 1963. He finished with lifetime .221 batting average with 12 home runs and 39 RBIs in 416 at-bats.
