Darryl Breaks

In his 1998 Ultra, Card #394, Darryl Strawberry puts on the breaks.

This is yet another Sportlots purchase, this time from the one and the only jvickers, who I'm going to hit again sometime in the future.


I like this shot for some reason. You see it all the time in baseball. Was the third base coach stopping him? Was it a line drive that was caught? Something else? Who knows?

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I'm curious about the story behind this card too... but honestly the thing that makes this card for me is that Strawberry has all of his limbs intact. No fingers were cropped off in the production of this card.

    1. That's a great point about the fact that you can see all four limbs. Great observation!

  2. Ultra was always kind of underrated. Many of their shots mimic a Stadium Club card.

    1. I've been pleased with the cards that Ultra put out that I've collected.

  3. I liked this set. I got a box of Series 1 for Christmas in 1997.

    I'd have to think this photo was from spring training. It looks too bright to be in NY. Weird, I know.

    1. It does look very bright indeed. Unless it was a day game at the Old Yankee Stadium?
