Darryl Strawberry: 1993 Metz Baking

This is the 1993 Metz Baking card that I got from Beau One Million Cubs (also on Twitter) in December 2019. I've just had an backlog of cards to post which is in part intentional (I have so few I have to space them out), but Beau's gift was inadvertently lost in the shuffle of blog post drafts. But, obviously, I found it!

Not a massive fan either of airbrushed cards or art cards; but for this one at least the art is an actual likeness to Darryl Strawberry. And weirdly though there is no logo on the hat, the full team name is listed in the name/team banner. The card front design is simple and attractive. The back is basic but readable. I'm grateful to have it.

It's ironic the bakery is called Metz!

Thanks Beau!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Not familiar with this set... but it looks like there's a Gwynn I hope to track down eventually.

  2. Have the McDowell form this. An odd set indeed.
