Justin Verlander

Justin Brooks Verlander
Bats: Right
Throws: Right
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 235 lbs.
Born: February 20, 1983 in Manakin Sabot, VA
Drafted: 1st round 2004 by the Detroit Tigers
Acquired: as a free agent, December 2022
Departed: traded to the Houston Astros with cash for Drew Gilbert and Ryan Clifford, August 2023

 

After Jacob deGrom defected to enlist with the Texas Rangers, the Mets moved swiftly to corral the reigning American League Cy Young award winner.  Justin joined his old compadre Max Scherzer as the two-headed ace of the New York staff for 2023.  Yeah, that didn't work.  By the trade deadline both aces were gone, serving as the hired guns in the American League Central range war, Justin returning to the Astros, and Max standing in for the wounded deGrom for the Rangers.  Verlander's final win as a Met was the 250th of his storied career, though now his tenure in New York is looking more and more like, “Oh, you mean he was on the Mets once?”  JV is shown here on a beautiful 2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces card, and on several more below the stats box.

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.
