Dan Warthen

Daniel Dean Warthen
Batted: Both
Threw: Left
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 200 lb.
Born: December 1, 1952 in Omaha, NE
Drafted: 2nd round 1971 by the Montreal Expos

 

Dan showed some early promise as a big-league pitcher but couldn't overcome control problems and was out of the majors by age 26. Thirty years later he became the Mets pitching coach, a position he held with great success. He's shown here in the same capacity for the 2004 Norfolk Tides. (Side note: I think Dan looks a lot like Doctor Nefario from the movie "Despicable Me." See below.)  A card from his playing days is among those shown under 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.
