Card of the Moment #19

Ahh, the wonders of technology. As I sit on a beach, digging a hole in the sand with a 1 year old, my precious baseball card blog runs itself. What did people do before the internet?

2005 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites #DS Darryl Strawberry Bat Relic

Anyway, here’s a sweet-assed Darryl Strawberry flavored bat relic. Maybe it not seem like all that big a deal to other people, but to a Mets fan, especially one my age who grew up with the ’86 team, I don’t know if it gets any better than owning a piece of a bat used by the Strawman.

I think everyone knows all about the troubles he had in his personal life, but the man was an All-Star every single year that he was a Met, with the exception of 1983, his first season. Don’t feel bad about that, though. He did win Rookie of the Year that season, so that probably took some of the sting out of not being named to the All-Star team.

  1. I share your joy of a great 86 Met game used card. I have a couple of Straw’s (not this one though) along with an auto.
