One of my favorite things to do is visit the local farm each June and go strawberry picking. Since I've started collecting cards again, I decided I'd do the same thing but with Darryl Strawberry cards. Recently COMC had a deal where if you spent $20 you got free shipping so I decided to select a bunch of cards that looked interesting and filled in some my pre-1990 holes. I also think I didn't follow the instructions correctly and paid for shipping. Oh well.
I did select a number of the more prominent makers like Topps and Fleer, but I was really intrigued mostly by the oddball or more limited cards. Like a darn fool I bought one card that I already have (1988 Topps Kay Bee Toys Superstars). One of the factors that went into the order was the quasi-unknown: seeing cards listed on COMC that weren't represented in the Trading Card Database. Thus I was able to get something for my collection, and contribute to theirs.

Hope you enjoy these images. The back side of the 1989 Bowman is perhaps my favorite and I'll include an image here because I love the information it printed: Strawberry's 1988 stats by team played. I think this was a wicked cool idea. I know this information is now readily available through Baseball-Reference and maybe other websites, but putting my 1989 hat on and thinking about the other cards shown here, it really stands out.
Thanks for stopping by!
