A Darryl Strawberry Tale of Two Pinstripes

I got these two Darryl Strawberry goodies from "jessecar" on Sportlots.

The first is the 1987 Red Foley sticker. Not a perfect cut, but that's ok. When I got this I googled around to see what the sticker albums looked like and a flood of memories kind of came back to collecting these and adding them into the pages. I wonder if the Trading Card Database has fully completed sticker albums on it's website? Have to look into that, or even suggest that this be a feature for these particular sets.


It might be frivolous to have included the sticker back, but, it felt weird just having the one image.

And here is a 1999 Fleer Tradition card. Another one! This time it's the "Millennium" parallel. This one has gold font and an embossed (is that the right word) "2000" logo in the bottom right of the card.


The 1980s Mets uniforms are a beautiful thing and I must prefer them to the, of course, classic Yankees uniforms. What about you?

Thanks for stopping by!
