Pitcher, New York Mets
1993 Topps Stadium Club #514
Topps Fact: Rookie Card 1984 Topps Traded
GMT Fact: While most people remember Gooden as a pitcher, when times got tough and Doc needed a quick score, certain pushers in Harlem (and certain Topps photographers) insisted he turn around and be a catcher.
Note: For the life of me, I can't figure out the stat line on this card. It must be an error, no? It has Gooden playing 31 games, hitting .255 with 93 runs, 11 HRs and 86 RBI.
