Darryl Strawberry in 3-D

Another Sportlots acquisition. This time a single "card" from whoops 24. 

This it the 1986 Topps 3-D card of Darryl Strawberry. A very good, cool card, though the faces on the ones I've seen are kind of meh, with regards to how they look. Legs, arms and bodies all 'translated' a bit better.

I remember having some of these as a kid as this was the height of my collecting as a pre-teen and early teenager.


Now, for the back. Kind of cool. I would have loved something on the back to make it interesting; but then having the tabs for stickers might have been weird. How did you handle the 3-D 'cards' when you had them? I guess the intention, with the stickers, was to tape them to a wall or inside of a locker or something?


Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I opened a box of either this or the 1985 version... and they're a pain in the butt to store because they're oversized... but even worse... they don't stack nicely. With the negatives aside... I still like these oddballs and stuck an extra Rickey Henderson up in my office.

    1. They really are hard to store; I like the idea of putting it up in an office. I wish I had a card office of my own!I could see almost maybe a shadowbox kind of frame?
