Darryl Strawberry: 1997 Score

Score, too, got on the parallel train. I guess there was peer pressure. The below two Darryl Strawberry cards are from 1997. The top is "Premium Stock" and the bottom is "Showcase Series".

I like the pure white back with black font; the transparent old-timey Yankees hat & bat logo is subtle and pretty. We get full stats on the back though the font is small and, as well, four lines of text. That's maximizing the space and Score was keeping the faith on something it tended to do well from the beginning which is having good amounts of writing on the back. What's more they have fielding statistics at the bottom and splits on the right side. 



There's a lot to lover about the card backs here; the front of the cards? Nice action shot. The "Showcase" case looks better in person and the PS foil-stamp-thing just kind of looks like Strawberry's pooping a football.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I don't know if this is the sort of content I deserve on a Friday after a long work week, but it is definitely the content I need. Thanks for making me laugh!

    1. I'm not sure whether to say "I'm sorry" or "You're welcome".

  3. It does look like he is pooping a football. Well said.

    I think I like the gray background better than the white background of the base card.

  4. Lol. I feel like this is the 2nd card this week featuring a ball coming out of someone's bottom. Anyways... kudos to Score for packing so much information on the back of that card. Shame that there's no way the 2021 me can see it without a magnifying glass... but back in 1997 I probably could.

    1. Oh, neat. Poop is all the rage these days. I love scanning these cards because on the computer I can read it crystal clear!
