Felix Hernandez is one of the best starting pitchers to ever play for the Seattle Mariners. King Felix appeared in 15 MLB seasons, all of which were with the M’s. While Felix’s peak was extremely high, he had a sharp decline, throwing his last pitch in the Major Leagues at just 29 years old. He ended his career with a 3.42 ERA, 8.3 K/9, 8.2 hits/9, and 2.7 BB/9. Along with that, he won a Cy Young in 2010, led the league in ERA twice, and made six all-star games.

An awards series card based on Hernandez’s 2010 Cy Young season would be a very good choice, but I think an even better option for him would be a Retro Finest based on his 2014 season. During that year, he set career bests in hits/9 at 6.5, K/9 at 9.5, and BB/9 at 1.8. This was the only time he posted a BB/9 under 2.0. But the best possible choice would be bringing back his Milestone perfect game card from MLB The Show 21, which had 120 hits/9, 100 K/9, 97 BB/9, and a five-pitch mix.
