1992 Fleer, Curt Young
#272 Curt Young
Here is the third and final card that Curt Young signed for me this past Spring Training. Curt is the pitching coach for the A's and he signed the cards for me before a road game at Camelback Ranch.
I mentioned in the first two posts of Curt that he spent ten out of his eleven seasons with Oakland. After the 1991 season, and a 5.00 ERA, the A's granted Curt free agency. He was picked up by the Royals and appeared in ten games with them in 1992. He was 1-2 with a 5.18 ERA before getting released in June. The Yankees picked him up six days later and he went 3-3 with a 3.32 ERA over thirteen games. He was again granted free agency after the season and the A's picked him back up. He made just three starts with Oakland in 1993 and went 1-1 with a 4.30 ERA. That was the end of Curt's career.
Curt finished his career 69-53 with a 4.31 ERA.
This action shot must be one of the most popular ones for Curt. All three cards that he signed for me featured similar shots. You can see his 1991 Fleer card here and his 1990 Topps card here.
