Default Bret Saberhagen Collection

I mostly collect football, so not many of you know me. But I do have a pretty big Tony Gonzalez thread on the football sife of Blowout (which includes scans of 131 Gonzo 1/1's I have, among other cards), so some of you might.

Anyway, thought I would do a small introduction.

I have always been a big Saberhagen fan. Growing up in Kansas in the 80s, baseball was a fun to the watch, and the Royals were a great team. Our lineup was loaded. George Brett (the captain), Frank White, Willie Wilson (the KC Ozzie Smith), Steve Balboni (our pre-Bo Jackson power hitter), awesome fielding by Lonnie Smith, as well as great pitching by 'Sabes' (the clubhouse joker), Dan Quisenberry (RIP), trusty Mark Gubicza, and even a young David Cone. If I ever have kids, they likely won't believe me, but, yes, there was a time when we usually beat the Yankees.

With only a little over 650 different Saberhagan cards produced, this collection can never reach the scope of my Steve Young or Tony Gonzalez collections. But the collection makes up for it's lack of cards, with neat 80s odd-balls, including food issue cards (something I wish they still did).

I guess I will start with the early years and work my way up a few years, and then likely jump around. So give me a few days and I hope to have a decent collection shown.

Feel free to PM me with offers for cards I might want.

1985 might have gotten me hooked, but it was 1986 when I went full blown into sport cards. Love this era of cheesy Topps cards and drug store cards.


1986 7-11 Coins #S6 Ron Guidry/Bret Saberhagen/Fernando Valenzuela PSA 10
1986 7-11 Coins #W6 Ron Guidry/Bret Saberhagen/Fernando Valenzuela PSA 10


1986 Donruss #11 Bret Saberhagen Diamond King PSA/DNA
1986 Donruss #100 Bret Saberhagen PSA 10


1986 Fleer #19 Bret Saberhagen PSA 10
1986 Fleer Mini #3 Bret Saberhagen PSA 9


1986 Fleer Baseball's Best #31 Bret Saberhagen PSA 10
1986 Fleer League Leaders #37 Bret Saberhagen PSA 10
1986 Fleer Limited Edition #38 Bret Saberhagen
1986 Fleer Star Stickers #103 Bret Saberhagen PSA 10


1986 O-Pee-Chee #249 Bret Saberhagen PSA 10
1986 O-Pee-Chee Box Bottoms #O Bret Saberhagen PSA 8 (Nice box bottom. I think this came from an unused box, as several have been on ebay. There is a PSA 9, but it has the borders cut off...looks better with the border.)


1986 (Topps) Quaker Chewy Granola Bars #19 Bret Saberhagen


1986 Royals Kitty Clover Discs #3 Bret Saberhagen PSA 9


1986 Royals National Photo #31 Bret Saberhagen


1986 Sportflics #10 Bret Saberhagen PSA 10
1986 Sportflics #185 1985 20 Game Winners PSA 10


1986 TCMA Bret Saberhagen. Given away, along with a Tony Gwynn signed card, as a bonus for purchasing groups of the various TCMA sets.


1986 Topps #487 Bret Saberhagen PSA 10 Lot. One of my favorite 80s card and perhaps favorite Sabe card.


1986 Topps Wax Box Cards Panel #M-P Murphy, Saberhagen, Rose, Valenzuela PSA Slabbed



The Saberhagen card on this panel is really nice. The panel just has slight creases on the top cards...I spent many ebay searches looking for a nice example of this card before I found this.

1986 Topps #487 Bret Saberhagen PSA/DNA
1986 Topps #720 Bret Saberhagen All-Star
1986 (Topps) Kay-Bee #27 Bret Saberhagen PSA 10
1986 Topps Tiffany #487 Bret Saberhagen PSA 10


1986 Topps 3-D #25 Bret Saberhagen


1986 Topps Gallery of Champions Silver #12 Bret Saberhagen


1986 Topps Tattoos Bret Saberhager PSA 10 & 1986 O-Pee-Chee Tattoos #Sheet 2 Dale Murphy, Brian Fisher, Bret Saberhager, Others. The Topps and O-Pee-Chee Tattoos are exactly the same and the only way to tell them apart is in sheet form and the copyright.

Not that much, I go to his show every 3-4 months..meaning I miss most of them. Some pretty good deals at the last couple, but my collections are too focused, so it's hard for me to find anything.

Rock is a good guy. Remembered me after I had not been there for over 15 years...and I never spent much money there.

I think I have about 400 Sabes, and Beckett says he has a little over 600....so missing about a third. Mostly cards post-1991, after Sabes was traded.

If i ever get around to making a list I can likely pick up 50 or more for next to nothing on sportlots. Until then I have been working on later inserts, autos and more so, my other collections.

My main card interest at the moment is Tony Gonzalez....

Feel free to let me know what any of you have and what you want. Looking now for box panels, magazine panels, those hard to find tea disc cards, and later inserts.

Will pick up with 1987 scans tomorrow.

I'll look through mine, I used to be an oddball dealer from 1983-1992. I actually just pulled a pretty big lot of different Saberhagen items thinking there must be a collector for some of this out there. I do well with the odd stuff on COMC (a few Bret's on there).

Awesome collection. Almost all 10s. Not sure how you feel about hip hop but you should check this song out. You might appreciate it. If you can't stomach it just skip to the 3:54 point. You'll like it

His son was coaching as an assistant at the college I went to. I went to a few games with the hope that Brett might show up, but he never did.

That just makes me feel old. I remember when his son was born (during the World Series he was MVP of).

I think the most suprising thing about Saberhagen was his W/L splits during his first 10 years (1984-1993); his record in odd years was 81-37 with a 2.91 ERA while in even years it was 39-53 with a 3.68 ERA.

Nice collection.

And talk about a steal for the Royals, a 19th round draft pick...

Bret Saberhagen Autographed Mets 8x10 PSA/DNA COA (2010 era signature)




New York Times; July 28, 1993

BASEBALL; Saberhagen Admits to 'Joke'

Bret Saberhagen yesterday identified himself as the player who lit a firecracker and threw it under a table near reporters in the Shea Stadium clubhouse on July 7.

"I have nothing to hide," said Saberhagen, the right-hander for the Mets.

And despite the public tumult involving Vince Coleman, Bobby Bonilla and last Saturday's incident with fireworks in Los Angeles, Saberhagen added that he had no reason to apologize.

"It was a practical joke," Saberhagen said. "If the reporters can't take it, forget them."

Saberhagen insisted he had not thrown the firecracker with the intent to injure anyone. No injuries from the incident were reported.

"I didn't throw it in the middle of them," Saberhagen said of the reporters who had crowded around Anthony Young's locker after a 2-0 loss. "I wanted to get people's attention. There are always tons of reporters here when something bad is happening. I don't like a lot of them."

Saberhagen said he has not been disciplined by the club for the incident. "What are they going to do? Fine me?" Saberhagen asked.

Saberhagen Says He Sprayed Bleach

Daily News Wire Services; August 11, 1993

Bret Saberhagen apologized for his "practical joke" gone astray after being identified yesterday by the New York Mets as the player who sprayed bleach on two reporters two weeks ago.

The team said the pitcher will contribute one day's pay, $15,384.62, to a charity or charities designated by the New York Chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America.

Saberhagen, on the disabled list after knee surgery this week, also will miss a number of days to be determined when he returns from his injury in about a month.

The 29-year-old righthander initially denied spraying the bleach and threw a clubhouse tantrum Friday night after learning the Mets had completed their investigation of the matter.

This was the second time this summer Saberhagen denied involvement in a clubhouse incident before reluctantly accepting responsibility. On July 7, he threw firecrackers behind reporters who were interviewing pitcher Anthony Young.

Saberhagen said the bleach episode July 27 was designed as a prank "to return a practical joke played on me by a Mets employee" and that he did not plan to harm anyone. He apologized to the reporters - Dave D'Alessandro, of The Record, and Mark Herrmann, of Newsday - and said he would reimburse them for any damage to their clothes.

"My intention was simply to paint the employee's jeans with bleach," Saberhagen said in a statement. "Unfortunately, in trying to get the bleach to the front of the squirt gun I was using, I squeezed it too hard and some of it accidentally shot into the air, apparently landing on at least two reporters in the clubhouse . . .

"I never intended, however, to harm anyone, and any perception that the bleach was sprayed intentionally at reporters, in an effort to hinder the performance of their functions or for any other reason, is simply mistaken."

Saberhagen explained why he did not come forward.

"My reason for not doing so was both simple embarrassment and a concern that the employee involved could get in trouble with the club if I were asked to explain my actions," he said.

When no player took responsibility, the Mets, led by general counsel Dave Howard, investigated. On Friday night, with word the investigation was complete, Saberhagen smashed a super-soaker water gun in the clubhouse and flung a box of golf balls across the room.

The next day, the pitcher's leg buckled in the bullpen while warming up for a start, and on Monday he underwent surgery for torn cartilage in his left knee. He is expected to resume pitching in about a month.
