4 Cards from A Cracked Bat

So, I got more cards from Julie over at A Cracked Bat. And I couldn't be happier.

There were three John Kruk cards. One of Darryl Strawberry. Let us look at the Kruk's first:

What you see above of John Kruk are
1988 Fleer, Card #589
1993 Duracell Power Players II, Checklist/Header, Card #1
1993 Duracell Power Players II, Card #3

All very welcome; especially that checklist/header card. Duracell, or whomever printed this card did an almost masterfully obvious job of ridding Kruk's caps of their "P's".

And, now, the Strawberry.

Darryl Strawberry: 2005 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites, Card #9

This 2005 Topps All-Time Fan Favs card is so sweet. In the design of 1988 Topps, this card is leaps and bound superior to the original issue, card #710. In fact, even the Wax Box Card is better than the base set issue. I'm sorry not to give any love to the original base card but I can guarantee that my 13-14 year old self loved the card when it first came out. Time makes us re-evaluate and maybe makes us more cynical whilst at the same time nostalgic. Time is curious. Anyway, the funny this is is that the cards are nearly similar; but he just looks less awkward in the Fan Favorites shot; the original base set card there are all sorts of different angles his arms and legs are making that just kind of weird's me out. Sorry, I guess the fact that I need help is actually confirmed now...

Thank you so much, Julie!

Thanks for stopping by!
