1981 Topps John Denny

The front: Simple spring training headshot.

The back: Dwight Gooden broke Denny’s record by leading the league as a 21-year-old in 1985.

The player: Denny put up some good seasons for some bad teams for the late-70s Cardinals and early-80s Indians. He finally pitched for a winning team with the Phillies in 1983 and won the Cy Young Award, going 19-6 with a 2.37 ERA. Overall in thirteen seasons he went 123-108 with a 3.59 ERA.

The man: Denny was a coach for a while but now appears to be retired.

My collection: I have 29 of his cards, from 1975 to 1987. I would be interested in trading for 1977 Hostess #42.
