Darryl Strawberry: 1988-1989 Star (Gold Edition)

Previous posts on the Blue and Platinum editions of Darryl Strawberry cards printed by the Star Company have appeared on this blog. I guess I am the sucker for buying the Gold Edition, too. Like Gold Member, though, I love gooooooooooold.

Like the previous series, these cards print fascinating information. One card is just labeled "New York". Really brought their A-game there! These cards make me feel old, though, because of how skinny and young Strawberry himself looks. Which reminds me that I was about 14 or 15 when these came out and still had hair.

A bad cropping job up in the top left. This is a representative example of my early days in buying and scanning. I think I got these back in May or June and it's been festering as a Draft post since then.

But I've got the bug, the fever.  I don't think I can be satisfied with the 1988 Blue, Platinum and Gold editions, especially knowing there is the Purple edition and the Platinum glossy editions out there somewhere.

Thanks for stopping by.
