First 2020 Darryl Strawberry Baseball Card!

Tom, who is the author of the always-great-to-read blog Waiting 'til Next Year and who can be found on Twitter, sent me my very first Darryl Strawberry card for 2020. The Silver Pack Promotions card, no less. The funky pattern interferes with the presentation via scanning, but I hope that doesn't ruin your enjoyment of the card.


But Tom didn't stop there. Nope. He also include a 1989 Topps Double Header card of my favorite baseball player (Darryl Strawberry).


These are scans of the "card", but this is how it presents, with the little plastic case that stands up. It's presently on a shelf by my desk next to some baseballs.



Thanks Tom!

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. My pleasure!
    I'm almost embarrassed you included my Twitter handle... I look at Twitter probably 10 minutes a day, but I'm not very active otherwise. Your Twitter game is very strong. Love the polls and the #bleachertweets.

  2. From what I've seen, those silver pack cards usually have multiple parallels, so you should have at least a few new Strawberry cards to chase this year.

    1. Oh! I'm not a chaser. The only one I might possible go after is the plain-jane base. Not into the parallels thing.

  3. Those double header cards bring back some fun memories!

    1. I had no idea they existed until Tom sent it to me!

  4. The Double Headers are cool oddball issues. Lack of space forced me to pop them out of their holders and put them into binder pages though.
