Chris Flexen

Christopher Flexen
Bats: Right
Throws: Right
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 250 lbs.
Born: July 1, 1994 in Newark, CA
Drafted: 14th round 2012 by the Mets
Departed: as a free agent, December 2019

 

Signed with the Mets as a teenager fresh out of high school, he produced pedestrian stats for his first few years in the minors, but broke through in 2017 with a fantastic start in St. Lucie, then Binghamton, culminating in a shot in the big leagues at the end of July.  Chris recorded his first career victory in one of the rare games that I have been able to attend in person, but generally speaking, he was not ready for prime time.  When the Mets designated him for assignment in December 2019 to free up a roster spot, he left to sign a contract with the Doosan Bears in the Korean League.  A year later he was back in the bigs with the Mariners, looking pretty spectacular for awhile.  He became the property of the Mets again for a few seconds in 2023 before being designated for assignment.  Chris is shown here with the Mariners on a 2021 Topps Update card, and on a couple of other cards below.

This is a list of the cards of this player that I had in my Mets collection before I transferred the ownership of said collection to another diligent and capable Mets fan. The cards that are listed in light gray print and struck through are cards that were sold for charity prior to my divestiture.  The cards listed in white text are the ones that still remained until that final deal.  Items listed in green I kept out of the deal, just so I'd have something to display in my office and den.  At the bottom and listed in orange text are cards that I picked up after the dealing was done, in order to maintain a certain continuity at this site; that is, so I'd have a card to show you at the top of the page, and maybe in the autographs and game-used areas.  If an orange card is struck through, it has also departed the collection.  m still accepting donations, should you feel so moved.  Contact me by following this link: NYMHall.
