#710 Darryl Strawberry
Why this card is awesome: Because of that tiny piece of body armor Strawberry is sporting on his shin. Over the last 10 years, things have gotten way out of control with that.
Also, Strawberry was one of many amazing signings by scout Roger Jongewaard. I can't find a decent bio for him online, but he has signed tons of great players.
Cool stat: Strawberry was in the top 20 for homers through age 26 season, as well as homers through age 28 season but currently stands at 87th in career homers.
